The present article reviews the recent advances in the management of cataract and corneal transplant. Recent findings Thanks to the development of lamellar transplant techniques and the evolution of cataract surgery, we now have several strategies to address corneal diseases and cataract including ‘lamellar triple procedure’. Numerous precautions have been identified to have a successful surgery with good visual recovery. Summary Corneal diseases associated with cataract can be successfully managed using separate or combined surgical procedures, as appropriate. In most cases the intraocular lens power can be calculated with a predictable outcome. Copyright © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
