We present a case of Werner's syndrome (WS), which is a rare progressive hereditary disorder characterized by accelerated aging. Bilateral cataracts are one of the cardinal signs of WS. The clinical characteristics of our patient met the diagnostic criteria of “Probable WS” according to the International Registry of Werner Syndrome. Our patient presented with bilateral phacomorphic glaucoma. Previous reports involving single case of WS, cataract surgery was performed by clear corneal phacoemulsification. Our patient underwent immediate bilateral sequential manual small incision cataract surgery (IBSCS) with intraocular lens implantation. We highlight the fact that bilateral cataract surgery with Manual small incision cataract surgery (M-SICS) for phacomorphic glaucoma is a safe choice for patients with Werner's syndrome.
