Congenital cystic eye, also known as anophthalmos with cyst, is an extremely rare congenital anomaly, first described by Mann in 1939 with a prevalence of 3 per 1,00,000. Congenital micropthalmos is also a rare condition with prevalence rates of 1.4 - 3.5 per 10,000 births. The objective is to report a case of a 19 year old male who was born to non-consanguineous marriage, presenting with left sided anophthalmos with right sided microphthalmos, with horizontal nystagmus and healed perforated corneal ulcer. Differential diagnosis include encephalocele, dermoid cyst, congenital cystic eye and tumors. Early visual rehabilitation is advised.
