Congenital aniridia is a rare ocular disorder characterized by iris malformation. We present a 3-year-old boy with bilateral anterior-segment dysgenesis, congenital aniridia, congenital aphakia, secondary glaucoma, limbal stem cell deficiency, and band keratopathy. As the intraocular pressure was uncontrolled with antiglaucoma medications, the patient underwent multiple bilateral traditional cyclophotocoagulation (CPC), in addition to micropulse CPC. To the best of our knowledge, aniridia association with congenital aphakia and congenital glaucoma has been very rarely reported.
