We report a case of a 27-year-old male presenting with blurred vision in one eye which was discovered at an army recruitment camp. He was examined and subsequently diagnosed to be having Descemet's membrane tears, due to forceps-induced birth trauma with amblyopia. His vision improved with a rigid gas permeable contact lens to 20/60.
