The Effect of Neodymium : Yag Laser Posterior Capsulectomy on Refraction
(John J. Alpar)
Abstract
52 consecutive patients with in-the-bag modified J-loop lenses had posterior capsulectomy performed with Neodymium:YAG Laser. 3 mm openings were made. There was a shift toward both myopia and hypermetropia following this procedure but only 5 shifted enough to warrant a change of glasses at the six months level whereas at the one month level the change was not significant enough in any of the patients to replace lenses fitted prior to YAG laser capsulectomy.
Key Words: Neodymium:YAG;Capsulectomy;Refraction;Posterior Capsule;Cataract;IOL
