In brief: Visual disabilities

Marfan syndrome patients, if severe, can have disabilities involving vision, such as reading.
Patients can have dislocated lens in the eyes (lens are out of position and cannot focus properly), retinal detachments (retina comes off the inside surface of the eyeballs), early cataracts (lens become cloudy), or early glaucoma (excess pressure inside the eyeballs).
