Alport syndrome is an inherited disease characterized by progressive renal failure, hearing loss, and ocular abnormalities like anterior lenticonus, corneal opacities, cataract, central perimacular and peripheral coalescing fleck retinopathies, and temporal retinal thinning. Although anterior lenticonus is common in Alport syndrome, simultaneous anterior and posterior lenticonus is a rare presentation. We report a case of a 22-year-old female with simultaneous anterior and posterior lenticonus presentation in which ocular examination lead to the detection of Alport syndrome. The patient had sensorineural deafness as well as microscopic haematuria. Clear lens extraction was performed in both eyes to eliminate lenticular irregular astigmatism for visual rehabilitation.
