Case 4 (a right eye; b left eye), Case 5 (c right eye; d left eye), and Case 6 (e right eye; f left eye) with ectopia lentis in both eyes associated with Marfan syndrome. Brothers (Case 4 and Case 5) and a sister (Case 6) in a family with Marfan syndrome. Their father’s eyes are aphakic after lensectomy in both eyes for ectopia lentis with Marfan syndrome. Only Case 5 (c and d) underwent lensectomy in both eyes at the age of 12 years, due to aphakic optic axis in the right eye (c). Case 6 with smaller degrees of ectopia lentis in both eyes (e and f) at the age of 17 years still maintains good visual acuity at near and distant viewing while Case 4 (a and b) with ectopia lentis, more marked in the left eye (b), shows relatively worse visual acuity in the left eye at the age of 10 years
