Intravitreal cyst is a very rarely reported case in children. Here, we report a case of a 10-year-old male child who presented in outpatient department with a complaint of floater in his right eye which was changing its position with movement of eye but did not increase in size since the past 1 year. Visual acuity was 20/20 in both eyes. On slit-lamp examination, right eye showed a solitary pigmented unilateral freely floating cyst in the vitreous and left eye was normal. The indirect hemagglutination tests of the patient for Echinococcus and cysticercosis were negative. Eosinophilia was not detected in the peripheral blood smear. Based on these findings, the patient was diagnosed as a primary vitreous cyst. The patient had few symptoms, so it was decided to follow the patient without any treatment.
