Paper Abstract

In this paper, 30 cases of extracapsular cataract extractions with a Nd:YAG laser are reported. Myosis phenomenon in laser operation is observed and its producing mechanism is discussed. Laser ophthalmology was the earliest field in laser application research, and pulse Nd:YAG laser ophthalmic instruments have been developed rapidly because of unique advantages in the anterior and posterior capsulotomy and trabecula shaping method. Thirty cases of extracapsular cataract extractions with the assistance of a Nd:YAG laser are reported in this paper. In laser operation, myosis phenomenon is observed, and its production mechanism is discussed.
