A 45-year-old male rushed to us after he noticed a sudden drop in vision in the right eye (RE) since 4 h after he sustained a blunt injury to his RE with a cricket ball. His best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) in the RE was hand movements with +10D correction improving to 6/36. Ocular examination of the RE revealed clear corneas, mild iritis, sluggishly reacting pupil with aphakia. Wide-angle fundus photography RE revealed posteriorly dislocated lens in vitreous cavity [Figure 1]. The patient underwent pars plana vitrectomy and pars plana lensectomy with scleral fixated intraocular lens implantation. At 1-month follow-up visit, his BCVA in the RE was 6/12. Blunt injury to the eye may lead to sudden compressive deformation of the globe causing transient shortening of globe anteroposteriorly with compensatory equatorial expansion which in turn can disrupt zonular fibers and dislocate the lens posteriorly.,, Wide-angle fundus photography helps in patient counseling to explain the prognosis.
