A 10-year-old boy was referred for surgical intervention of cataract. On inquiry, the child gave a history of accidental injury to LE while playing 6 months ago, since then child complained of drop in visual acuity and his guardian said have noted a whitish spot inside the eye. On examination, his best-corrected visual acuity in RE was 20/100, N12. Dilated slit-lamp examination showed the presence of anterior subcapsular cataract with a partial and a complete rosette-shape cataract [Figure 1]. Remaining examination was unremarkable.
