The etiopathogenesis of iridoschisis is unclear, although age-related degeneration and angle-closure glaucoma are its most common associations. We report the case of a 50-year-old man with lens subluxation (familial) in 1 eye and ipsilateral iridoschisis. The inferotemporal edge of the lens was directed anteriorly, pushing the iris forward; this led to iridoschisis and shallowing of the anterior chamber. The patient had bilateral angle-closure glaucoma. A subluxated lens rubbing against the iris may be a mechanical precipitating factor in the development of iridoschisis.
