Lens induced glaucoma (LIG) with pseudoexfoliation (PXF) is not a very uncommon entity. A 75 year old woman presented with LIG in left eye but with lens matter outflowing into the anterior chamber. Systemic examination was unremarkable. After lowering of the intraocular pressure, cataract extraction was performed following which patient had pain relief and got satisfactory vision. Correct diagnosis and administration of intraocular pressure lowering agents followed by lens extraction is crucial for a desirable outcome.
