A 20-year-old lady wearer of prosthetic soft contact lens (CL) presented with a complaint of foreign body sensation, redness, and watering while wearing CL in the right eye (RE) for duration of last 1 week. Visual acuity was no perception of light in RE and 20/20 in the left eye respectively. On slit-lamp biomicroscope examination, multiple raised circular bumps penetrate the front surface of the CL [Figure 1] resembling mulberry spots and gray jelly bumps 1 × 1 mm and irregular in surface were seen. The lens was discarded and replaced with new lens. Jelly bumps or mulberry spots or lens calculi are composed of lipid, protein, and calcium inherent in the tear film. Their formation is attributed to the depletion of the aqueous tear layer that results in a hydrophobic zone that, in turn, promotes this deposition.,
