Paper Abstract

A method of lens extraction after Nd:YAG laser capsulonucleolysis in the eyes with high myopia is described. The scheme and performance specifications of the Nd:YAG laser used for preparing the extracapsular lens extraction are presented. The treatment begins a few months before lens extraction by scleroplasty associated with cryoprofilaxy or Argon laser endocerclage. Twenty-four to forty-eight hours before the operation Nd:YAG laser pulses are applied on the exterior capsule, first in the periphery and then just in the middle of the pupila. A capsulonucleolysis is obtained and the extraction of the transparent lens is performed in extracapsular extraction of the cataract.
