Alport syndrome is an inherited disease with a trio of hearing loss, ocular abnormalities, and progressive renal failure. The most severe form is commonest in males due to the X-linked mutations. We present a 25-year-old male who presented with deterioration of vision over 5 years, further questioning revealed use of hearing aid. Although he had no renal-related complaints, investigation revealed proteinuria. There is a need for proper examination of developmental cataract to avoid missing out on Alport syndrome.
