Abstract

Little has been written about the ophthalmic findings in fragile X syndrome, the second most common chromosomal cause of mental retardation after Down's syndrome. This paper reviews the ophthalmic findings of 55 patients with fragile X syndrome. Strabismus was the most common finding occurring in over 40%. Other findings included amblyopia, refractive errors, nystagmus, ptosis, and convergence insufficiency. Genetic testing, which is becoming increasingly available, and other systemic aspects of the disease are discussed.
