A 30-year-old man presented to the ophthalmology clinic with a 1-week history of right eye blurred vision. He reported application of massage gun over bilateral periocular regions for 3 months. The best-corrected visual acuity was 20/25 in the right eye and 20/20 in the left eye. Slit-lamp examination revealed bilateral iris atrophy at the inferonasal region. In the right eye, there was anterior subcapsular and cortical cataract at the visual axis, associated with mild phacodonesis. There were dot opacities in the left eye lens without lens subluxation. The patient received right phacoemulsification with a multifocal intraocular lens implanted. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of bilateral traumatic cataract with symmetrical iris atrophy after repetitive periocular massage with a massage gun reported in the literature.
