Neodymium:YAG laser cutting of intraocular lens haptics



Neodymium:YAG laser cutting of intraocular lens haptics



Journal - American Intra-Ocular Implant Society 11(6): 568-571



Neodymium:YAG laser cutting of polymethylmethacrylate and polypropylene anterior chamber and posterior chamber intraocular lens haptics was studied in terms of ease of transection and physical structure of the cut areas as seen by scanning electron microscopy. A marked difference was discovered, with the polymethylmethacrylate cutting easily along transverse planes, whereas the polypropylene resisted cutting along longitudinal fibers. Clinical guidelines are presented.
