A middle aged female with oculo-cutaneous albinism visited our clinic for loss of vision in both eyes. She had almost total iris transillumination, cataract, transparent maculae and albinotic retinal mid periphery. She underwent unevetful phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation for right eye. Post operatively, her eye was quiet with a centered posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL). Iris transillumination defects and reduced iris pigmentation are known in ocular albinism. In our patient, the iris appeared like a sheer curtain and the IOL could be visualised in its entirety [Figure 1].
