Cataract surgery in lenticonus is challenging because of increased fragility of the lens capsule. In this case series, we report three different modes of cataract surgery in 15 eyes of ten patients with lenticonus. Six patients had Alport syndrome, out of which two were diagnosed after ophthalmic examination. Two patients had posterior lenticonus, among which one had persistent fetal vasculature. There was a significant improvement in visual acuity following cataract surgery. Therefore, cataract surgery can be safely performed in patients with lenticonus, and ophthalmologists can retard the progression of renal failure by early diagnosis.
