In adults, Haab's striae are often an accidental finding during routine examination. The presence of Haab's striae points to an underlying event involving the eye during the developmental stage. Even though in most cases, the event might have been resolved, an attempt should be made to ascertain the cause for such a finding. Here, we report a case of a young adult with Haab's striae in one eye and a posttraumatic phthisical fellow eye. In the absence of any concrete history, we have to consider the possibility of glaucoma as well as trauma. Necessary investigations and follow-up are warranted in such cases.
