An asymptomatic 24-year-old male was incidentally found to have a cyst in the anterior vitreous in the right eye [Figure 1]a, [Figure 1]b, [Figure 1]c. The cyst was pigmented, loculated, and clear with positive transillumination [Figure 1]b and [Figure 1]c. The cyst was freely floating, with excellent after-movements, and had no attachment to any other ocular structure. Solitary vitreous cysts are rare entities thought to arise from pigment epithelium usually found in the posterior vitreous. The cyst in our case was way too anterior and may have arisen from iris or ciliary body.
