Alport syndrome is a rare, hereditary basement membrane disorder associated with renal failure, sensorineural deafness, and ocular defects. Typical ocular manifestations include dot-and-fleck retinopathy, anterior lenticonus, and posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy. Anterior lenticonus occurs in approximately 50% of men with X-linked Alport syndrome and can cause significant visual limitations. Visual acuity and quality deficits resulting from anterior lenticonus can be managed surgically through the removal of the natural lens, though modern techniques, particularly the creation of a manual capsulorhexis are complicated by abnormal lens capsule structure in these patients. The role of femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) in the treatment of anterior lenticonus in patients with Alport syndrome has not been frequently described.
