Traumatic subconjunctival dislocation of the lens (phacocele or lenticele) is of relatively rare occurrence. We report an unusual case of subconjunctival dislocation of the cataractous lens following blunt ocular trauma by cow horn in an elderly patient without having any previous ocular surgery or trauma. Blunt trauma resulted in indirect scleral rupture with subsequent dislocation of the crystalline lens in the subconjunctival space. The pathophysiological mechanism, clinical presentation, and management are discussed in this case report.
