To report a case of isolated anterior capsule rupture with cataract after blunt ocular trauma. CASE SUMMARY: A 38-year-old male complained of decreased visual acuity in the right eye after blunt ocular trauma 5 days earlier. The visual acuity was counting fingers at 30 cm in the right eye, and intraocular pressure, measured using an applanation tonometer, was 25 mm Hg. Slit lamp examination showed a white intumescent cataract with anterior lens capsule rupture and cortical lens material extruding into the anterior chamber. Under local anesthesia, removal of the cataract was approached via a clear corneal incision. After removal of the cataract using irrigation and aspiration, the intact posterior capsule was observed. IOL haptic was implanted in the sulcus, and IOL optic was implanted in the bag. Postoperatively, the BCVA improved in the right eye to 0.8 at 1 month, and the intraocular pressure, by the Goldmann applanation tonometer was 13 mm Hg at that time.
