Purpose of review: The purpose of this article is to review the available strategies to successfully identify and manage ocular surface disease (OSD) pre, intra and post-cataract surgery. Recent findings: Cataract surgery and OSD have an intricate relationship: the surgical procedure can induce or exaggerate OSD symptoms, while OSD can negatively impact surgical refractive outcomes and increase the rate of postoperative complications. Summary: Improving the health and stability ocular surface is the key to enhance post cataract surgery refractive outcomes and avoid complications. This is pivotal for patients affected by severe OSD, but is also important for patients with minimal signs or symptoms. A correct diagnosis and a stepwise approach are the keys to improve the quality of life of such patients.

Recent findings: Cataract surgery and OSD have an intricate relationship: the surgical procedure can induce or exaggerate OSD symptoms, while OSD can negatively impact surgical refractive outcomes and increase the rate of postoperative complications. Summary: Improving the health and stability ocular surface is the key to enhance post cataract surgery refractive outcomes and avoid complications. This is pivotal for patients affected by severe OSD, but is also important for patients with minimal signs or symptoms. A correct diagnosis and a stepwise approach are the keys to improve the quality of life of such patients.
