Peters Anomaly Peters anomaly, historically called posterior corneal defect, is part of a spectrum of disorders known as anterior segment dysgenesis syndro me, also known as neurocristopathy or mesodermal dysgenesis. Peters anomaly is characterized by a central or paracentral corneal opacity (leukoma) associated with the thinni ng or absence of adjacent endothelium and Descemet's membrane. In normal ocular development, the lens vesicle separates from the surface ectoderm (t he future corneal epithelium) at about 33 days' gestation.

As the fiber cells mature, their nuclei and other membrane-bound organelles undergo degradation, a process that reduces light scattering. The primary lens fibers make up the embryonic nucleus that will ultimately occupy the central area of the lens in adu lt life.
