Abstract Microspherophakia is a rare, bilateral developmental anomaly of the crystalline lens. It can occur in isolation or as a component of a familial disorder. It has been associated with the Weill-Marchesani syndrome and Marfan syndrome. Angle clousure glaucoma can occur in microspherophakia and is the primary cause of visual loss. We describe the management of 2 sisters with bilateral microspherophakia and advanced angle closure glaucoma. Copyright © 2015 American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus.
