We report the first case of toric multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) implantation in both the eyes of a young patient of Alport syndrome with anterior and posterior lenticonus with a successful outcome. An 18-year-old female patient presented with progressively blurred vision in both eyes since 4-5 years not improving with glasses. Refraction showed high myopia with astigmatism; however, the vision did not improve beyond 6/60 with glasses correction. Clinical examination on slit lamp showed anterior and posterior lenticonus bilaterally with a classical oil droplet appearance. We performed clear lens extraction by phacoemulsification with toric multifocal IOL implantation in both eyes. Postoperatively, the patient achieved an excellent refractive outcome with the unaided vision of 6/9, N6 in both eyes.
