A 20-year-old female patient came for a routine ophthalmic evaluation. She had no ocular complaints. Best-corrected visual acuity was 6/6 in both eyes. Slit-lamp examination of the left eye is shown in [Figure 1]. Slit-lamp examination of the right eye also revealed similar findings. The posterior segment of both eyes was within normal limits.
