This patient was seen at age 72 for the iris changes seen in this video. He was found to have narrow angles in the right eye and on slit lamp examination the right iris appeared to be split with a forward bowing of the anterior lamellae. The left iris was disintegrated inferiorly. The patient also had marked nuclear sclerotic cataract. His intraocular pressures were normal.
