Lenticular astigmatism of 5.00 diopters developed after penetrating injury in the eye of a 16-year-old boy. Full visual acuity, refraction, and crystalline lens clarity remained stable for more than 2 years. The high astigmatism, in conjunction with a spherical cornea and posterior lens capsule striae, indicates the lenticular origin of the astigmatism.
