Aniridia and Axenfeld-Rieger Syndrome are related, human ocular disorders that are typically inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. Both result from incorrect development of the eye and have, as their most serious consequences, elevated risk to develop the blinding condition glaucoma. This review will focus on describing the clinical presentations of Aniridia and Axenfeld-Rieger Syndrome as well as the molecular genetics and current and emerging therapies used to treat patients.
