Summary

Lenticular changes are often seen following electrical injury. We report an unusual case of electrical injury with late spontaneous posterior dislocation of lens nucleus with intact anterior capsule with ruptured posterior capsule in the right eye and anterior subcapsular cataract in the left eye. The right eye was managed with pars plana vitrectomy with cortical matter removal with multipiece intraocular lens insertion in ciliary sulcus. This report adds posterior capsular rupture and posterior dislocation of lens to the usual ocular complications of electrical injury.
