Paper Abstract

Laser lyses have been made for 41 cases of eyes having posterior capsular fold after extracystic cataract extraction and posterior chamber artificial intraocular lens implantation by applying a Nd:YAG laser. Laser energy of a single pulse is 0.4 to 1.1 mJ, and the total curative energy per eye averages 24.1 mJ. Visual improving rate after treatment reaches to 100%. The curative rate after one time is 63.4%, and at the most three treatments are required. No complication has been found, and no damage on the intraocular lens has been observed with a high power microscope. Knowing well and strictly indications and selecting a suitable laser energy and focusing precisely are beneficial to improving the curative effect.
