Acorea is a congenital anomaly in which there is an absence of pupillary aperture. It is known to have an autosomal dominant inheritance and is associated with microphthalmos, cataract, and iridocorneal dysgenesis. It is caused when the mesodermal tissue of the iris fails to regress during embryogenesis. The lack of pupillary aperture prevents light entering the eye, often causing stimulus deprivation amblyopia. This case describes one such patient with acorea in the right eye with dense amblyopia.
