A 42-year-old female presented to the outpatient department with complaints of itching and a diminution of vision in both eyes. Slit-lamp examination revealed four rows of cilia in both eyes [Figure 1] and posterior subcapsular cataracts. The best-corrected visual acuity was 6/12 in both eyes. The patient was asymptomatic in relation to the presence of four rows of cilia. We concluded with the diagnosis of tetrastichiasis. Tetrastichiasis is the presence of the fourth row of lashes.[1]
