Her only symptom was mild glare from lights at night, which she described as stable and tolerable for many years. Visual acuity prior to dilation was 20/40 OD and 20/30 + 1 OS without improvement using pinhole. Intraocular pressure was 10 mm Hg OD and 12 mm Hg OS. Examination was remarkable only for bilateral persistent pupillary membranes (Figure). Pharmacological dilation provided a view of both fundi. Given her visual acuity, minimal symptoms, and lack of desire for surgical or laser intervention, she was observed.
