Neodymium: YAG laser for anterior capsulotomy



Neodymium: YAG laser for anterior capsulotomy



Journal - American Intra-Ocular Implant Society 11(4): 372-375



A technique using the Meditec OPL-3 YAG laser for anterior capsulotomy just prior to planned extracapsular cataract surgery is presented. A review of 1,108 cases showed this technique to have a low complication rate. Compared to conventional anterior capsulotomies, it is the author's opinion that this method gives increased operative control, shortens time in the operating room, and is a help with in-the-bag intraocular lens placement.
