Coloboma is a term used to denote a partial or complete absence of specific ocular tissues. It is a congenital malformation, which results from the improper closure of the optic cup during fetal development. We present a case of a 16-year-old female, who was referred to the Department of Ophthalmology due to iris coloboma and congenital cataract in the left eye. We describe surgical management including phacoemulsification combined with coloboma repair with sutures tied using the slip-knot technique, The presented surgical technique is safe and effective.
