A 22-year-old male presented with diminution of vision in both eyes with BCVA of 6/60 and 4/60 in the right and left eye, respectively (Refraction: OD –13 DS OS –18.5 DS). Ocular examination revealed an isolated optic disc coloboma and posterior staphyloma (AXL OD 26.6 mm, OS 27.8 mm, IOP 10- and 11-mm Hg in OD and OS respectively); along with focal nasal cataract in both eyes [Figure 1]a,[Figure 1]b,[Figure 1]c,[Figure 1]d. Although the fovea was spared, the low vision was possibly accounted for by the spill-over peripapillary atrophy onto the macula and disc coloboma. MRI brain in such cases is essential to rule out the systemic anomaly associated with cavitatory disc anomalies., Regular IOP monitoring is vital to avoid glaucomatous insult, as visual field and OCT–based monitoring would be ineffective in these anomalies.,

Additionally, no focal point of retinal vessel origin is noted in this anomalous disc. (c and d) Focal nasal nuclear sclerotic cataract in both right and left eye, respectively|
