For patients with both cataracts and glaucoma, the ophthalmic surgeon has a number of options to consider depending on disease states, aged or young patient, and number of medications being prescribed preoperatively. Combined surgery has the advantage of addressing both cataract and glaucoma problems simultaneously and helps to reduce the risk of an early intraocular pressure spike. The authors are recognized experts in the field and address the problems and provide excellent advice on patient management.
