Unknown Angle Anomaly

This patient was seen at age 16 at the University of Iowa in 1976 with 20/50 vision OD and 20/200 vision OS. He has retinopathy of prematurity, left esotropia, and nystagmus. On slit lamp examination he had this interesting adhesion bilaterally between the cornea and the iris that was called a peripheral Peter’s variant. The video here was taken 32 years later when his vision had decreased to count fingers in the left eye due to his worsening cataract.
