Double rosette cataract: A striking image!
The present case has been reported in the Indian Journal of Ophthalmology.

A 56-year-old male patient came with complaints of diminution of vision in the left eye since the last 1 year. He gave no history of any glare or difficulty at night. He did not have any relevant past history of any trauma (blunt or subtle, even after repeated questioning) nor of any ocular or systemic disease. He gave no significant personal history, was not a smoker, or gave no drug addiction history.

He was a spectacle wearer using a bifocal with distance correction +1.00 Dioptre Sphere (DS) in both eyes and a near correction of +2.50DS in both eyes. His best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was right eye (oculus dexter) (OD) 6/6, N6 and left eye (oculus sinister) (OS) 6/18, N6. On examination he was found to have a “double rosette cataract” in the left eye with early lens changes in the right eye.

Gonioscopy, indirect ophthalmoscopy, and ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) were carried out to rule out any signs of subtle trauma, and revealed no significant abnormality. The remaining examination did not reveal any significant findings. Furthermore, on examining his sibling and children no signs of any developmental cataract or similar lens abnormalities were noted. Suggesting that there was no significant family history suggestive of a similar “double rosette cataract,” thereby ruling out any familial or hereditary traits.
