Anisometropia is characterized by difference between the refractive errors of the eyes and can be classified into refractive and axial. Aniseikonia is one of the possible consequences of anisometropias. As a general rule, aniseikonia tends to be less significant when we correct axial anisometropias with spectacles and refractive anisometropias with contact lens. One of the possible causes of refractive anisometropias is aphakia, which can be a result of ocular trauma. Amblyopia is a visual neurological disorder characterized by inadequate consolidation of visual acuity, due to insufficient visual stimulation. We present a case of contact lens fitting in a patient with significant difference in axial length between the eyes, but without the corresponding anisometropia, since the patient became aphakic after blunt trauma during childhood affecting the eye with the longest axial length, and probably as a consequence of the aphakia, she did not become amblyopic.
