The article reports on a triple procedure technique for managing pseudophakic bullous keratopathy with an anterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL). The technique presents a unique surgical challenge due to previous complicate surgery, compromised aqueous drainage, unhealthy would configuration and a deficient posterior capsule. Details of the surgical technique are described.
