Wagner's Disease: Wagner's disease is a familial disease of connective tissue in the eye that can cause reduced visual acuity. Wagner's disease was originally described in 1938. This disorder was frequently confused with stickler syndrome, but lacks the systemic features and high incidence of retinal detachments. See an ophthalmologist. This usually requires retinal surgery.
