A 19-year-old young adult presented with redness, watering, and sudden drop in visual acuity in the right eye (RE) for 2 days. There was a history of blunt injury to RE with cricket ball 2 days back. His best-corrected visual acuity and intraocular pressure in RE were 1/60 (with + 10 D) and 4 mmHg. Anterior segment evaluation revealed lid edema, circumcorneal congestion, Descemet membrane folds, deep anterior chamber, iridodonesis, and aphakia. Ultrasonography B-scan revealed serpentiform-shaped retinal detachment with a posteriorly dislocated lens in RE [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b. He was started on systemic antibiotics, steroid eye drops, and cycloplegics. The patient underwent pars plana vitrectomy + pars plana lensectomy with silicone oil injection + fluid air exchange and scleral fixated intraocular lens in RE. At 1-month follow-up visit, his best-corrected visual acuity in RE was 6/12p. Surgery is usually indicated in dislocated lens due to high incidence of delayed complications such as allergic uveitis, leakage of dissolved lens leading to phacolytic glaucoma, and vision loss.,,
