A 60-year-old otherwise healthy male was found to have posttraumatic aphakia (ruptured lens with absorbed posteriorly dislocated lens matter). The anterior and posterior capsular remnants were found to have rolled over themselves giving the appearance of an interconnected double scroll on slit-lamp oblique illumination [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b. Scrolling indicates loss of vitreous adhesion to the posterior capsule (like free rolled flap of giant retinal tear); anterior capsule always having a scrolling tendency on account of no vitreous adhesion. The subject was successfully rehabilitated with capsulectomy and implanting an anterior chamber intraocular lens; anterior vitrectomy was not required during the surgery.
