A dislocated lens usually is not treated. The eye should be monitored by a physician periodically to make sure the condition remains stable.
If dislocation is accompanied by other eye problems or injuries, such as cataract or retinal detachment, it may be necessary to have surgery to remove the lens and replace it with a plastic lens.
Blurry vision caused by dislocated lenses often can be corrected with glasses.
