A 34-year-old Asian–Indian male presented with a history of sustaining electrical injury with a high-tension wire 10 years ago following which his right arm was amputated. He also gave a history of progressive shrinkage of the right eyeball since then. The right eye showed a deep superior sulcus with an enophthalmos of 6 mm. The rest of the ocular examination was within the normal limits. Various ophthalmic complications have been reported after electrical injuries, cataracts being the most common. Enophthalmos without any intraocular changes has not been reported after electrical injury.
