To discuss possible factors responsible for ocular inertness without resulting in an inflammatory incitement is the objective of this case study. A 35-year-old female patient presented with visual loss in the right eye following an accidental stick injury at the workplace one year back. Previous medication history includes topical instillation of antibacterial and antifungal agents with cycloplegics that resulted in relief of redness and eye pain. The patient noticed painless progressive visual loss for the past year and is now reported to the outpatient ophthalmic department. The patient was diagnosed to have adherent leucoma that obscured underlying traumatic cataract with the presence of light perception and accurate light projection.
