A 38 years old female patient presented with unilateral cataract without known predisposing factors. During cataract extraction, the surgeon noticed multiple white dots scattered over inner surface of the posterior capsule. These dots were of uniform size and shape. They were distributed uniformly and involved all the areas of the posterior capsule and extended up to equator. The surgeon decided to implant IOL and tackle the opacities in a later setup. In spite of the extensive opacities, the patient's Uncorrected Corrected Visual Acuity (UCVA) at six weeks was 6/9, Best Corrected Visual Acuity(BCVA) was 6/6 and near vision with correction was N6. The other eye was normal. This case is reported for the peculiar appearance and distribution of the capsular opacities and good visual outcome in spite of this.
