Coloboma is an eye abnormality that occurs during embryogenesis, it is a congenital defect typically presenting as a gap, hole or absent tissue in eye structures at a site consistent with aberrant closure of the optic fissure. It includes a spectrum of anomalies that ranges from iris coloboma to clinical anophthalmos. We report a case of a 63-years old female patient who suffered from bilateral progressing loss of visual acuity with no particular past medical history. The clinical examination found a typical inferonasal side iris coloboma and bilateral cataract without lens or zonular malformation. After the cataract cure, no chorioretinal or papillary involvement was found.
