A 61-year-old male presented with gradual painless decreased vision in both eyes for 3 years. The best-corrected visual acuity in both the eyes was 6/18. Slit-lamp examination showed bilateral mild inferior subluxation of lens with intact stretched zonules from 9 o'clock to 3 o'clock in right eye [Figure 1] and from 10 o'clock to 1 o'clock in left eye [Figure 2], with posterior subcapsular cataract grade 1 in both eyes. Posterior segment, and axial length of both eyes were normal. The patient had no systemic complaints, and his systemic evaluation was normal. Bilateral simple ectopia lentis is rarely seen inferiorly and can be managed conservatively if cataract is not visually significant, pupil is not bisected by luxated lens, and there are no lens-induced complications.
