Free-Floating Cyst in the Anterior Chamber

Arch Ophthalmol. 1998;116(9):1256-1257. doi:10.1001/archopht.116.9.1256

AN 18-YEAR-OLD African American man was noted to have a black spot in his left eye during a physical examination. Since then, he noted that the spot moved inside the eye and that he saw a transient "cloud" in this eye's visual field when he changed head posture. There were no other symptoms or ocular history.

Examination findings were unremarkable except for the presence of a free-floating pigmented cyst in the anterior chamber of the left eye (Figure 1 and Figure 2). The cyst was readily mobile with postural changes (Figure 3). The intraocular pressure was 16 mm Hg in both eyes.
