A 30-year-old man presented with left eye defective vision following an alleged ocular assault. His uncorrected visual acuity was 10/200, which improved to 20/40 with aphakic correction. Anterior segment examination revealed subconjunctival hemorrhage, anterior chamber cells, iridodonesis, aphakia, and vitreous blob in the pupillary area. Fundus examination revealed dislocation of crystalline lens in the vitreous cavity without any trauma-associated posterior segment complications [Figure 1], arrow]. With Ultrawide imaging, objects in the vitreous can also be imaged.

He underwent pars plana vitrectomy, lensectomy, and scleral-fixated three-piece intraocular lens. Postoperatively, his BCVA improved to 20/50.
