A 50-year-old male presented with defective vision in the right eye for 2 years. His vision in the right eye was 6/60. The slit lamp examination revealed horizontally enclaved iris-claw lens (3'o clock and 9'o clock), and anteriorly dislocated Capsular tension ring (CTR) was seen in iridocorneal angle with the early decompensating cornea [Figure 1]a. He had undergone cataract extraction 2 years back. Intraoperatively, CTR (10 mm) was placed for Zonular dialysis, during which nucleus dropped; pars plana vitrectomy with Lensectomy and iris-claw enclavation was done. The disparity of CTR size to corneal diameter (10 mm vs. 12 mm) plausibly caused the migration of the CTR anteriorly through the peripheral iridotomy [Figure 1]b. Hence, it is imperative to remove the CTR during secondary IOL procedure.,
