A 28-year-old otherwise healthy male was operated for corneoscleral penetrating injury repair [Figure 1]a. Postoperatively, anterior hyaloid face was seen as pulled forwards toward the wound indenting the upper half of posterior surface of the lens [Figure 1]b. Lenticular indentation was confirmed on anterior segment optical coherence tomography [Figure 1]c and [Figure 1]d. The likely cause of lenticular indentation in this patient was incarceration of vitreous in the wound. Lenticular indentation can cause unexplained astigmatism making visual rehabilitation difficult.
