A 30-year-old otherwise healthy male developed cataractous opacities after blunt injury to his right eye [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b. A slit-lamp evaluation revealed deposits on the posterior lens surface (white arrow) and anterior hyaloid face vitreous (green arrow) [Figure 1]c. Anterior segment optical coherence tomography showed corresponding areas to be hyperreflective [Figure 1]d. We believe that the cataract was caused by the leak of lens particles through microruptures in lens capsule posttrauma followed by the deposition and proliferation on posterior lens capsule and anterior vitreous (like visual axis opacification in children postcataract surgery).
