A 34-year-old man presented with a pigmented limbal mass, measuring 3 × 3 mm in the left eye (Figure, A), first noted at 4 months of age. Since its onset, there was no history of ocular trauma or change in size or morphology of the lesion. Gonioscopic examination revealed herniation of iris tissue into the cornea, encased within the split corneal lamellae (Figure, A, inset) that was confirmed on anterior-segment optical coherence tomography (Figure, B). Despite its presence, the patient was asymptomatic, with a best-corrected visual acuity of 20/20 OS. The patient was regularly followed up and counseled owing to the potential risk of glaucoma development, albeit low.
