Spontaneous lens absorption and dislocation of empty capsular bag in anterior chamber is an extremely rare phenomenon. The common predisposing factors can be weak zonular structure as in pseudoexfoliative syndrome, historical trauma or spontaneous absorption of hypermature morgagnian cataract. Here we describe a unique and rare presentation of a 53 years old gentleman who presented with defective vision in right eye (RE) for past 7 months.Visual acuity in RE was finger counting close to face and 6/60 in the left eye (LE). Anterior segment examination revealed a translucent membrane with rolled up margins in the right anterior chamber, anterior lens capsule calcification and posterior capsular breach, iridodonesis, pseudoexfoliation, sluggish pupil, and aphakia along with few vitreous strands. B scan revealed cortical matter in the anterior vitreous face in RE. The patient was planned for membrane removal, pars plana vitrectomy along with scleral fixation of intraocular lens. This case highlights the extremely rare presentation of capsular bag in anterior chamber in a spontaneously absorbed cataractous eye.
