Pseudoexfoliation is a common age-related condition characterized by production and deposition of whitish extracellular material in eye's anterior segment structures. Pseudoexfoliation material deposits in the anterior capsule are peeled-off by iris movements and can be macroscopically seen during dilated slit-lamp examination.[1] An 82-year-old male diagnosed with nuclear cataract had pseudoexfoliation material deposits in the anterior capsule that formed a concentric ring [Figure 1]a. Imaging of these deposits with anterior segment optical coherence tomography gave us some artistic pictures, with the most impressive being a multicolor spiral element dangling in the anterior chamber reminding us Van Gogh's Starry Night [Figure 1]b and [Figure 1]c.
