A 35-year-old male patient presented with gradual, painless diminution of vision in the left eye for 6 months, with best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) 6/6 OD and 6/18 OS. He suffered blunt trauma to his left eye 1 year back. Slit lamp revealed a central rosette cataract with lens coloboma extending from 2 to 4 o' clock, which was more obvious on retroillumination. Rest of the ocular examination was unremarkable [Figure 1].
Lens coloboma is a congenital zonular anomaly, without loss of lens substance. Traumatic cataract results due to mechanical, oxidative, and inflammatory damage postinjury. It has a flower-petal appearance and each petal corresponds to a sector of cortical opacity.
