Photo by Professor Chua

This 30 year-old Indonesian sustained a blunt trauma to his left eye from a swinging iron chain 3 months ago. He was treated in the casualty for skin laceration and discharged. Three months later, the vision remained poor. Examination revealed dilated pupil, presence of vitreous in the anterior chamber and a posteriorly dislocated lens. Surgery was planned for anterior vitrectomy, removal of the crystalline lens and scleral fixated lens. However, the patient did not return for operation.
