Persistent fetal vasculature (PFV) is a rare congenital developmental malformation of the eye which results from a failure of the fetal hyaloid artery to involute. PFV is usually characterized by microphthalmia, a shallow anterior chamber, elongated ciliary processes, a posterior subcapsular cataract, and a fibrovascular stalk that extends from the optic disc to the lens. It is a rare and sporadic disease with an overall prevalence of 0.064%. We report a case of a young male who presented with decreased vision in the right eye. On examination, it was diagnosed with complete persistent hyaloid artery. The patient was advised regular follow-up.
