Glaucoma surgeries are rarely combined with toric intraocular lenses (IOL) to address the astigmatism in a glaucoma patient. We report a case of a young woman with glaucoma secondary to steroid usage post femtosecond laser assisted keratoplasty for progressive keratoconus. The patient was operated for combined trabeculectomy with phacoemulsification and a customized toric IOL was implanted. Postoperatively the patient maintained good uncorrected visual acuity and stable intraocular pressure. Toric IOLs can provide a safe and convenient way of correcting high astigmatism and can be successfully combined with trabeculectomy to provide a better visual outcome.
