  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Q-switched Nd : YAG laser posterior capsu-lotomics were performed in 88 aphakic and 27 pseudophakic eyes, containing 10 children's eyes. Post-laser, the visual functions of these cases were markedly improved. Posterior capsulotomics were performed successfully in children's eyes without general anesthesia. Complications included slight flare in the anterior chamber (100%), transient rise of TOP (≧25mmHg) (16.7%), bleeding from the iris (5.2%) and vitreous prolapse (3.5%). Pitting (88.9%) and cracking (18.5%) of the IOLs were observed in the pseudophakic eyes. Serial corneal endothelial cell counting demonstrated no changes.
