    A coloboma describes conditions where normal tissue in or around the eye is missing at birth. A coloboma can affect one or both eyes. It is believed to be genetic and can be passed along in families. A coloboma is diagnosed by a thorough eye exam by an ophthalmologist. There is no cure for a coloboma, and treatment varies depending on the type.
