  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

We performed the Nd-YAG laser procedure as adjunct to cataract surgery using either the mode-locked unit (Meditec) or the Q-switched unit (AMO). The procedure was used as anterior cap-sulotomy prior to cataract surgery or as posterior capsulotomies or synechiotomy following cataract surgery. A total of 250 eyes were thus treated,

Cases of posterior capsulotomy with Nd-YAG laser recovered sufficient postoperative visual acui-ty.

A rise in intraocular pressure was the major com-plication of the laser therapy. All the complica-tions were of fleeting nature and subsided soon spontaneously.
