Only few cases of Eptopic cilia have been reported in literature. Anterior ectopic cilia cause no apparent ocular symptoms and can be surgically excised for cosmetic improvement. We report a case of a 28-year-old male with anterior ectopic cilia in association with hypermetropic anisometropic amblyopia. Only 15 cases of anterior ectopic cilia have been reported in literature. Few of them were associated with some conditions such as choristoma, aberrant lacrimal glands, atopic eczema, nail–patella syndrome, and hypochromic nevus. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of anterior ectopic cilia associated with hypermetropic anisometropic amblyopia. No underlying common causative disorder became evident. The observed association was considered as coincidental.
