A 41-year-old male patient presented with conjunctival mass in both eyes since 5 years with no history of pain or visual disturbance and nonprogressive. On examination, bilateral, pinkish, freely mobile, nontender conjunctival mass noticed on both sides of cornea, with rest of the findings being normal. No lymphadenopathy. No history of systemic illness. Surgical excision biopsy with histopathological examination of conjunctival mass of both eyes was done. Report showed low-grade Extranodal non-Hodgkin's marginal zone lymphoma. As the isolated ophthalmic features of lymphoma is as such rare, there are high chances of misdiagnosing the condition with the other ocular conditions. Suspicious presentation requires a surgical excision biopsy.
