Ocular trauma is among the common causes of dislocation of lens. An eleven year old male child having history of getting operated on his right eye for congenital cataract with implantation of intraocular lens as well as for subsequent retinal detachment in later phase of life, presented with complains of decreasing vision and pain in right eye after having encountered a blunt trauma. Alongside an anteriorly dislocated IOL and herniated silicone oil bolus in the anterior chamber gave the appearance of a polypseudophakia. Complete clinical examination along with a detailed history is the way for avoiding gross clinical misdiagnosis and thus employing appropriate management.
