PURPOSE: To describe the potential complications of cataract and refractive surgery in patients with Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy (FED) and keratoconus. DESIGN: Retrospective case series. PARTICIPANTS: Eight patients with FED and keratoconus in a large university group practice. METHODS: We reviewed the clinical and topographic findings of 8 patients (15 eyes) with FED and keratoconus. Clinical examination, corneal topography, specular microscopy were done, and sequential central corneal thickness (CCT) was obtained. Follow-up ranged from 1 month to 6 years.
