The anterior segment of the eye collectively describes the cornea, iris, lens, anterior and posterior chamber, and parts of the ciliary body and sclera. During the development of the eye, the anterior segment of the eye is built up by complex cell differentiation and cell migration. A variety of genetic causes for diseases of the anterior segment of the eye are known, for example:
- Cataract (cataract)
- corneal dystrophies (corneadystrophies)
- glaucoma (glaucoma)
- Coloboma (cleft formation)
Dystrophies and malformations of the anterior segment of the eye can be well treated surgically in some cases.
