Abstract: Purpose of review: This paper reviews the importance of ocular surface management in patients undergoing cataract surgery. The current strategies for the diagnosis and management of ocular surface disease in cataract surgery patients are discussed. Recent findings: The current trend is to diagnose and treat ocular surface disease before cataract surgery using a stepwise regimen tailored to the individual patient and disease severity. Summary: Maintaining a healthy ocular surface is essential for achieving the best visual outcome in cataract patients. Ocular surface preparation is beneficial not only in patients with established ocular surface disease, but also in those with minimal signs or symptoms of surface disease.
