Cataract extraction with intra-ocular lens (IOL) implantation is the most common sight-restoring surgery performed in the elderly. Blunt trauma is usually associated with severe ocular damage and grave consequences in post-operative eyes. Here, we report a case of a 70-year-old male, who suffered from blunt ocular trauma following one and a half month of phacoemulsification in the right eye. Phaco-tunnel wound was healthy, the iris was crumpled and settled at the bottom of anterior chamber, and the IOL was in the bag. There was no wound dehiscence. This is a rare presentation as the majority of reported cases had wound dehiscence and iris expulsion.
