Clinical course, presentation profile, response to treatment of two patients who developed a toxic anterior segment syndrome (TASS) following uneventful phacoemulsification. Both the patients underwent slit-lamp examination and dilated fundus examination, in each follow-up and aggressive treatment with topical and systemic steroids. The white to white corneal edema and anterior chamber reaction subsided on follow-up at 1st and 2nd month, respectively, with improvement in vision. The report highlights key features such as relatively quiet eye on the first postoperative day with classical TASS picture seen on the fifth postoperative day and moderate recovery within a month necessitating a thorough examination of patients till the first week of surgery.
