A 26-year-old male presented with self-sealed corneal perforation [Figure 1]a, lenticular anterior capsular rupture [Figure 1]a, and cataractous lens with rosette formation on posterior capsule [Figure 1]b. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography was done to document the corneal perforation [Figure 1]c, anterior capsular rupture [Figure 1]d, and posterior rosette with water vacuoles [Figure 1]e.

Rosette cataract is seen classically after a blunt trauma injury to the eye. We report a rare association of open globe injury with lens capsule rupture with rosette cataract. The cause of the above might be sufficient to impact time before perforation, which behaved like a concussion and early presentation of the patient.
