A 22 yr old female presented to the Ophthalmology outpatient department, Andaman & Nicobar Islands Institute of Medical Sciences, Port Blair, India, in August 2019, with complaints of mild blurring of vision in the right eye. Spindle-shaped brownish pigmentary deposits were observed on the anterior lens capsule during slit-lamp examination of the right eye, establishing a diagnosis of congenital unilateral lenticular pigmentation [Figure 1]. Snellen's visual acuity in the right eye was 6/9, which was corrected to 6/6 with −0.5 D spherical lens. Rest of the ophthalmic examination was normal in both eyes. The patient was prescribed glasses, and on the follow up visit after one month, she maintained her vision and had no other ocular complaint.
