  • Will a Coloboma Get Better?


    Question:

    Will a coloboma (a birth defect that results in missing ocular tissue) on infants ever go away later on in life?


    Answer:

    No, a coloboma will never go away at any point during life. The good news is that a coloboma will not get worse. Many colobomas do not cause serious visual impairment. A discussion with your child's ophthalmologist will help you to understand the visual implications of your child's coloboma.
