Background: Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a rare, autosomal-inherited, connective tissue disorder characterised by bone fractures, deafness and blue sclera. Additional ocular findings are decreased ocular rigidity, myopia, glaucoma, keratoconus, corneal opacity, small corneal diameter and congenital Bowman's layer agenesis.
