    A pseudophacocele follows blunt ocular trauma leading to subconjunctival extrusion of an intraocular lens (IOL) associated with posterior segment disruption. Clinical signs of a pseudophacocele include the absence of an IOL in the posterior chamber, a soft eye, blood in the anterior chamber, a peaked pupil, iris disinsertion, and vitreous hemorrhage. Management of the rare condition calls for a multidisciplinary approach to save vision.
