A 35-year-old male presented with defective vision in the left eye following blunt trauma 2 days back. Vision in the left eye was 6/60. Dilated slit-lamp examination showed rosette cataract, which was broken in the middle by posterior capsular (PC) break [Figure 1], with dehiscence in the center [Figure 2]. The patient underwent phacoemulsification with anterior vitrectomy with 3-piece acrylic lens in sulcus and vision improved to 6/9. Blunt eye injuries cause PC rupture or posterior subcapsular cataract called rosette cataract due to countercoup injury., Here, we present both rosette cataract and PC rupture, which is unique. PC break is usually linear extending equator to equator. PC dehiscence can be localized.
