Congenital anomalies of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) are rare entities among which simple hamartoma of RPE is extremely rare. Majority of reported cases of congenital simple hamartoma were extrafoveal and patients were asymptomatic. These lesions may pose diagnostic challenge if not aware. Here, we present two cases of simple congenital hamartoma involving fovea presenting with diminished vision and also discuss the review of literature in brief.
