'Lenticonus' is a bulging of the lens capsule and the underlying cortex. The diagnosis of lenticonus is essentially a clinical diagnosis made by bio-microscopic examination.

Classification scheme

  • Lenticonus anterior: lenticonus anterior is part of the Alport's syndrome
  • Lenticonus posterior; lenticonus posterior is more common than lenticonus anterior and is not associated with systemic disease.
