mi·cro·cor·nea (mi″kro-korґne-ə) [micro- + cornea] a usually bilateral developmental anomaly, in which the cornea is unusually small (less than 11 mm after one year of age), due to arrest of development. It may be associated with other ocular abnormalities, such as microphthalmia, hydrophthalmia, multiple defects of the anterior chamber, cataract, and glaucoma, and may be inherited as an X-linked recessive or as an autosomal dominant trait.
