A 23-year-old man presented with decreased vision in his right eye, with visual acuity hand movements and intraocular pressure of 10 mm Hg. Slit-lamp examination of the right eye revealed complicated cataract and a non-dilating “filiform” pupil due to circumferential posterior synechiae [Figure 1]. On ultrasonography, total retinal detachment was found in the right eye. Examination of the left eye was unremarkable, with 20/20 corrected visual acuity. The patient underwent cataract surgery with pars plana vitrectomy and silicone oil tamponade in the right eye. The filiform pupil can be classically seen in patients who have had chronic inflammation due to uveitis, infection, or long-standing retinal detachment.,
