Marked discordance for myopia in female monozygotic twins Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Female monozygotic twins aged 54 years discordant for myopia are reported. One twin presented with bilateral high myopia (right eye = -6.00/+0.50 x 5 degrees , left eye = -6.00/+0.50 x 45 degrees ) and her identical twin had no significant refractive error (right eye = -0.50/plano, left eye = -0.50/+0.75 x 40 degrees ). An explanation for the striking refractive discordance seen in this case report is yet to be determined.
