Mooren's ulcer is an intractable and someti-mes incurable eye disorder. When it is complica-ted by cataract the situation becomes disastrous and the most patients finally want the removal of their blind painful eyes. Nevertheless, no report has appeared, to the best of my knowl-edge, concerning the treatment of this situati-on. Recently, I succeeded in saving two cases with cataract and Mooren's ulcer. The following steps have been employed in the procedure.

1. Necrotic debris and regenerating epithelium on the ulcer are thoroughly removed, and the remaining epithelium of the unaffected corneal area is also scraped off.
