The function of the lens is to focus light rays on to the retina, which allows us to see objects at varying distances. The lens is held in place by ligaments, and those ligaments can become dislocated. Typically, dislocation occurs from trauma such as a car accident or other impact. Unfortunately, once a lens is dislocated, the result is blurry vision. And, the condition is permanent as there currently is not any treatment available to repair it. However, if the dislocated lens is coupled with retinal detachment or glaucoma, surgical removal of the lens may be necessary.
Diminished eyesight can have a devastating impact on the victim's life. In some situations, it can cause the victim to be dependent upon others for transportation and other daily activities. For some, it can cause them to be unable to perform their job which can create a huge financial burden on them and their family. For many victims, the diminished vision causes depression and anxiety.
