This paper presents jive cases describing associated ocular malformations such as coloboma, microphthalmos and microcornea. The authors try to find the clinical and genetics diagnosis of each case. The procedures were presented in arder to minimize the visual deficit of these cases. The authors also discuss the indications and the difficulties that they found during these procedures. The improvement of the visual acuity was achieved in all the surgical cases.
