We report laser photocoagulation of avascular retina through dislocated crystalline lens in ROP baby in the left buphthalmic eye ([Figure 1]a, [Figure 1]b, [Figure 1]c, [Figure 1]d]; birth-gestational age 28 weeks, birth-weight 1.2 kg, postconceptional age 38 weeks; zone 2, stage 3, plus disease). Vitrectomy with lensectomy was not preferred as refractive rehabilitation would not have been possible (ACIOL—poor iris support, SFIOL—thin sclera). Laser through posteriorly dislocated lens is possible, but one has to be cautious due to sudden change in refractive medium at lens border, limiting ourselves only distal to disease demarcation line.
