Traumatic cataract is a major cause of visual disability and blindness in children, especially in developing countries [1–3]. Ocular trauma causes 12–46% of all pediatric cataracts [4, 5]. Children are more likely to be affected by it while playing unsupervised. Sharp metallic objects, wooden sticks, pencils, firecrackers, stones, balls, toys, etc. may cause trauma.
