PATIENT STORY DISEASE & CONDITION

Megan, Williamsport, PA

The Family Approach

“To say that Lenz Microphthalmia Syndrome is one of the rarest conditions on the planet would be an understatement.

(LMS is a genetic disorder characterized by abnormal smallness of one or both eyes, often resulting in blindness.) I searched for answers for two years. Finally, Dr. Alex Levin and Jenina Capasso helped me to get my arms around Mason’s condition. I have never left Wills Eye Hospital without knowing more than when I went in.

“I’m a working-single-mom with two young boys and the pediatric staff understands that. They always ask how the three of us are doing. This whole family approach is almost as rare as Lenz Syndrome, believe me.”
