An asymptomatic 35-year-old female presented with 6/6, N6 vision, and a white lesion in the right eye. A 3 × 6 mm white lesion on the iris with a fluid-debris level was seen [[Figure 1] and Video] [Additional file 1]. Intraocular pressure (IOP) and open angles were noted. As the visual acuity was good with normal IOP, the patient was advised regular follow-up visits. Iris stromal cysts are generally unilateral with a smooth surface and contain a fluid debris level. They can be congenital or acquired. Stromal cysts tend to have fewer complications like rapid growth, rupture, hemorrhage, glaucoma, cataract, uveitis, and corneal touch. Differentials include primary cysts like pigment epithelial cysts, secondary cysts due to trauma, parasites, surgery, malignancies, inflammatory, medications,,,, iridocorneal endothelial syndrome, foreign body, varices, and hemangiomas.
