These are the diffuse [Figure 1]a and anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) [Figure 1]b images of the right eye of a 1-month-old child who was diagnosed with a bilateral Peters' anomaly type II., The AS-OCT image, taken with high resolution, portable and hand-held ENVISU OCT (LEICA Microsystems), shows the incomplete separation of the globular lens from the posterior corneal surface causing localized lens opacification and central corneal scarring.

AS-OCT is a useful tool to differentiate between various causes of congenital corneal opacities and can further help to decide a treatment plan leading to better anatomical and functional outcomes in such patients.
