Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a group of rare genetic, progressive multisystem disorders with frequent ocular involvement. Advances in enzyme replacement therapy and haematopoietic stem cell transplantation have improved patient life expectancy and reduced disease burden over recent years. This increase in life expectancy has resulted in more complex eye disease management issues. Ophthalmologists play a crucial role, as part of a multidisciplinary team, in managing these patients and their complex visual conditions. This review aims to update eye care professionals on the spectrum of MPS conditions and the important role in monitoring eye disease and their medical and surgical management. Further, it highlights the important role of optometrists and ophthalmologists in recognising the signs and symptoms of MPS, and knowing when to refer on to a physician, to help expedite diagnosis of these debilitating conditions
