Alport's syndrome with anterior lenticonus poses significant challenges during capsulorhexis with high chances of peripheral extension. We report a case of 23-year-old lady with Alport's syndrome with anterior lenticonus in the left eye that underwent successful femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS). The anterior lenticonus was eccentric nasally; hence, the FLACS capsulotomy was positioned slightly nasally so that the capsulotomy margin was outside the cone base. The distance vision improved from 6/24 to 6/6 at one-month follow-up. In summary, FLACS improved the safety of cataract surgery in an eye with anterior lenticonus and yielded excellent visual outcomes.
