An 11-year-old female presented 10 days after blunt trauma to the right eye by a cricket ball. The slit-lamp examination revealed a white cataractous lens, along with a central defect in the posterior capsule [Figure 1]a. The anterior-segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) showed intact anterior capsule, various hyporeflective spaces in the lens, along with posterior capsular rupture; resembling a 'high tide' [Figure 1]b. The posterior capsular rupture, though rare as compared to the anterior capsular tear, can be seen after blunt trauma, or can be preexisting.,, The anterior preoperative AS-OCT can be used to assess the integrity of the lens capsule in such patients.
