    Description
    Intraoperative photograph of a 68-year-old patient with congenital rubella syndrome and light perception visual acuity since childhood. The image shows a pigmentary retinopathy and the lens spontaneously displaced into the vitreous cavity. The patient sought care complaining of a total and sporadic loss of vision that was hindering her in daily tasks. Surgery was indicated to remove the lens.
