lenticonus

A condition in which one or both surfaces of the internal crystalline lens of the eye is conical rather than spherical. This causes distortion of vision.

lenticonus

A conical projection of either the anterior or posterior surface of the crystalline lens of the eye, occurring as a rare congenital anomaly. The anterior lenticonus is the most common and most often associated with Alport's syndrome. If the bulging is spherical, instead of conical, the condition is referred to as lentiglobus. It produces a decrease in visual acuity and irregular refraction that cannot be corrected by either spectacle or contact lenses.
