A 15-year-old female, with previous ocular trauma, presented with a complaint of whitish discoloration in her right eye since childhood. Best-corrected visual acuity was 20/40 in the right eye. Slit-lamp examination revealed an adherent leukoma along with brown-colored cilia suspended in the anterior chamber [Figure 1]. The anterior chamber was quiet. The crystalline lens was clear, and fundus was unremarkable. Glasses were prescribed and no surgical intervention was attempted.

The presence of intraocular cilia following penetrating injury is extremely rare.[1] In the absence of intraocular infection, they remain in the eye for several years without causing any harm.[2]
