A 50 year old man presented to Eye clinic University clinical centre Tuzla with bilateral visual impairment. Clinical examination revealed low visual acuity and keratoconus in both eyes, white cataract in right eye and diabetic retinopathy in left eye. Ultrasonography examination was normal. The patient underwent Trypan blue capsule staining, phacoemulsification and implantation of intraocular lens Alcon AcrySof SN60T9 16 D spherical and 6.0 D cylinder power. Phacoemulsification went uneventful and early postoperative recovery was successful. Visual acuity improved to 0,8 and fundus examination revealed background diabetic retinopathy. Postoperative follow up two years after surgery showed no signs of keratoconus progression and visual acuity maintained the same.
