Fabry Disease is a rare disease that does not typically disturb visual function. However, ocular signs of corneal verticillata, spoke-like cataract, or vessel tortuosity may be key to its diagnosis. Being able to recognise the signs and symptoms of Fabry Disease, and knowing when to refer on to a physician, can help expedite diagnosis of this debilitating condition.
