Cryptophthalmos, a very rare congenital anomaly of the eye, is characterised by skin passing continuously from the forehead to the cheek over a malformed eye. It may be isolated or more commonly as a part of Fraser syndrome. Cryptophthalmos is classified into three types: complete, incomplete and abortive. Surgical reconstruction is the modality of treatment available. We present a case of bilateral, complete, isolated cryptophthalmos, who has undergone stage 1 of reconstructive surgery.
