Fuchs' heterochromic iridocyclitis is a chronic non granulomatous specific uveitis entity which is commonly unilateral. Here we present a case of a middle aged man who presented to us with clinical features specific to this disease. After control of inflammation , he underwent cataract surgery with IOL implantation and peripheral iridectomy. At the end of six weeks follow up, his vision improved with normal intraocular pressure. This case is being presented to emphasize the good prognosis of Fuchs' heterochromic iridocyclitis when treated appropriately.
