NEODYMIUM: YTTRIUM – ALUMINIUM – GARNET (Nd: YAG) LASER POSTERIOR CAPSULOTOMY IN POSTERIOR CAPSULAR OPACIFICATION

Dr. Keerthi Sri. A. S

Abstract


Posterior  capsular  opacification  (PCO)  is  a  common  complication  following cataract surgery. When   “PCO”   evolves   following   cataract surgery,  it   leads   to    symptoms  like blurring of vision and glare.   At present, the most widely  practiced  procedure  for  the  management  of  symptomatic  “Posterior capsular  opacification”  is  Nd:YAG  laser  capsulotomy.In  this  study  an  attempt  has  been  made  to  evaluate  the  outcome following Nd-YAG laser capsulotomy. Aim of the study is to assess the correlation between PCO and visual acuity before and after Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulatomy,to assess the results of Nd-YAG LASER posterior capsulatomy,to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the above procedure. A good improvement in the visual acuity was seen in most of the patients after the Nd:YAG laser procedure in this study and Nd:YAG laser is a safe and effective procedure.
