Acta Ophthalmol (Copenh). 1993 Dec;71(6):850-2. doi: 10.1111/j.1755-3768.1993.tb08614.x.


A case is described where exfoliation syndrome developed in a relatively young patient with heterochromia. The patient had previously undergone large radial iridotomies as part of penetrating keratoplasty procedures. This case illustrates an association between iris surgery and early manifestation of exfoliation syndrome.
