A 70-year-old female visited our hospital last summer with a history of painless, progressive diminition of vision in the left eye for the the past 1 years. She complained of developing sudden pain in the left eye for the past three days. There was no other significant history. The significant findings on her left eye examination was a visual acuity of perception of light with accurate projection of rays, corneal edema, hypermature cataract seen through a hazy media, deep anterior chamber and floating white lens particles looking like minute snow flakes filling the aqueous and forming a pseudohypyon(figure 1).
