PERSISTENT HYALOID ARTERY

Persistent Hyaloid artery is usually in one eye only and occurs in 95% of premature infants.  It manifests as glial material from the optic nerve to the posterior surface of the lens, forming a Mittendorf’s Dot.  It doesn’t have symptoms for the patient and may sometimes be associated with optic disc coloboma or optic nerve hypoplasia.
