A 16-year-old male Type A hemophiliac patient has been reported with complaints of defective vision in the right eye (OD), following ocular trauma 9 months back for which he took treatment outside. On examination, he had blood staining of cornea and cataract in his right eye. His vision was perception of light + and projection of rays intact. After hematologist opinion, under peribulbar anesthesia, he underwent penetrating keratoplasty with pupillary membranectomy and cataractous lens removal with posterior chamber intraocular lens implantation under the cover of Factor VIII (antihemophilic factor). On day 21, the best-corrected visual acuity in OD was 6/6P. This case report emphasizes the fact that hemophiliac patients can be operated safely with appropriate hematological support.
