  • Nanophthalmos 4 (NNO4) [MIM:615972]: A rare disorder of eye development characterized by extreme hyperopia (farsightedness) and small functional eyes. The cornea and lens are normal in size and shape. Hyperopia occurs because insufficient growth along the visual axis places these lensing components too close to the retina. Nanophthalmic eyes show considerable thickening of both the choroidal vascular bed and scleral coat, which provide nutritive and structural support for the retina. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:24852644}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
