Blind eyes are left unattended. They present with unsightly large exodeviation, corneal degenerative changes such as band-shaped keratopathy and mature cataract. These have cosmetic as well as functional implications. It is an obstacle to social life as well as securing employment and betterment of career options. We need to address these patients for psychosocial well-being. We propose a novel surgical approach to address the exodeviation with a distance near disparity as well as to obviate the leucocoria due to mature cataract as the patient did not want to continue pupil occluding cosmetic contact lens any further.
