A 58-year-old man presented with blurred vision in his left eye (LE). He gave a history of old blunt trauma to LE. Corrected distance visual acuity was 6/6 in right eye and 6/9 in LE with normal intraocular pressure. Gonioscopy revealed angle recession <270° in LE. On examination, irregular areas of pigmentation on the posterior capsule of LE were noted [Figure 1]. Rest of the examination was normal.

Posterior capsular pigmentation following blunt ocular trauma is a rare finding. A blunt trauma may lead to disruption of Wieger's ligament and entrapment of aqueous in Berger's space with pigment deposition over posterior capsule.[1],[2]
