A study of blindness in mice, heterozygous for a dominant lethal mutation is reported. The eyelids may fail to fuse in the late embryo or may open at 2 or 3 days of age. The expression of the character may be an opacity of one or both eyes, reduced size of eyeball in one or both eyes, or opacity in one with reduced size in the other. Penetrance is incomplete.
