A 15-year-old otherwise healthy female was incidentally found to have congenital cataracts in both eyes. Morphology showed central nuclear involvement, dense dots with centripetal comet tail-like extensions [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b. She had best-corrected visual acuities of 20/30 and 20/40 in right and left eyes, respectively, and was kept on conservative follow-up. We would like to describe this morphology of cataract as “zorbing ball” cataract on account of its resemblance to zorbing ball [Figure 1]c, which is an adventure sport involving sitting inside a rolling ball.
