Dr. Debra Goldstein delivers clinical pearls for improving cataract surgery outcomes in patients with uveitis.

Cystoid macular edema should be preoperatively treated, as it is difficult to control postoperatively. Finally, surgeons should set reasonable expectations for visual improvements after the surgery.
