A 10-year-old male child presented to the clinic with complaints of glare in sunlight and difficulty in reading near text. The child's best-corrected visual acuity was 20/50 in both eyes.

Slit-lamp biomicroscopy of the anterior segment revealed the presence of a lamellar cataract along with a sutural cataract in both eyes giving an appearance of a clock-like structure in retro and diffuse illumination technique [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b. The posterior segment was within normal in both eyes.

Sutural and lamellar cataracts are congenital that affect the fetal lens nucleus of the anterior and posterior crystalline lens.[1],[2] Such cataracts do not progress and cause a minimal visual disturbance. These cataracts do not require surgical intervention because there is no effect on vision.[3],[4]
