A 26-year-old male with previous ocular trauma with cricket ball presented with decreased vision in his right eye for 2 years. His best corrected visual acuity was 20/40 in the right eye. Slit lamp examination of right eye revealed whitish, central lenticular opacity in the form of nonagonal petals of a flower, giving it a “petaloid appearance.” Each petal had dense white margins and was separated from each other by dark lines [Figure 1]. Petaloid cataracts are classically seen in patient with blunt trauma to eye.[1] These cataracts can be easily managed with phacoemulsification and results in good vision gain.
