We read with great interest the excellent article by Papadopoulos C, et al.[1] We applaud the authors on diagnosing and managing the rare entity but would like to state that a detailed ocular workup should be done in all cases diagnosed with this disease.

Besides cataract, other vision threatening diseases like ptosis, weakness of the ocular muscles, ophthalmoplegia, sluggish pupillary response, low intraocular pressure, retinal degeneration,[2] strabismus and refractive errors [3] are also seen. Regretfully, most of the health institutes tend not to focus on this aspect of the examination.
