To report a case of right posterior dropped crystalline lens by a car battery explosion ocular trauma, in which the diagnosis was missed on initial ocular B-scan ultrasonography. Ocular injuries can be severe enough to compromise the vision, temporarily or permanently, depending on the type and mode of trauma itself; besides the urgency and competency of their managements. They often happen due to cars, sport, bombings, work, or war-related accidents. They can be penetrating or nonpenetrating injuries due to sharp or blunt impact causes; both can damage the structures at the front or at the back of the eye, with deferent degrees of severity. The prompt and competent emergency actions are the ophthalmic surgeons' challenges to save the vision. One of the not-uncommon eye traumas is due to the car battery explosions, which can lead to crystalline lens anterior or posterior dislocation. This case study will report the presentation and management of a posterior dropped crystalline lens by a car battery explosion, in which the diagnosis was missed on initial ocular B-scan ultrasonography.
