Persistent pupillary membrane (PPM) is due to incomplete involution of tunica vasculosa lentis which normally disappears by the end of 8th–9th month of gestation., Dense bilateral hyperplastic PPM is a rare occurrence with high risk of causing amblyopia and cataract in early age., In our case, despite central thick bi-lateral PPM [Figure 1], the patient did not develop amblyopia due to stenopic effect of pseudo-pupillary apertures and was conservatively managed with spectacles. Medical, laser therapy and surgical treatment have been reported early.,, Ophthalmologists need to recognize this condition early and treat them on individual case based approach.
