After obtaining consent, a 43-year-old healthy woman with no systemic diseases showed signs of early cataractous changes with notching of the lens at the equator inferonasally extending from the 4'o clock to the 5'o clock position with stretched zonules suggesting lens coloboma in the right eye [Figure 1]. The term “lens coloboma” is a misnomer because the defect is of the zonules and not of the lens.[1] Zonular fibers may be absent or attached to the notch of the coloboma. The present case had an isolated lens coloboma with stretched zonules.
