A 35-year-old man presented with traumatic iritis, angle-recession glaucoma, and a retinal dialysis secondary to blunt trauma from a Taser gun in the right eye and a unique electrical cataract in the left eye. Taser guns, which can also function as stun guns, can lead to electrical cataract formation. Given the increasing use of Taser guns by law enforcement and citizens, blunt mechanical and electrical sequelae of Taser gun injuries should be recognized.
