Five Consecutive Cases of Liquefied Aftercataract: Impact of Nd:YAG Laser Capsulotomy on Refraction and High-Order Aberrations

The Open Ophthalmology Journal 9 May 2012 LETTER DOI: 10.2174/1874364101206010026

Abstract

For five consecutive eyes from five patients with liquefied aftercataract, Nd:YAG laser treatment significantly reduced high-order aberrations. Two eyes showing a reduction in positive spherical-like aberrations after treatment showed a postoperative myopic shift, while three eyes showing no change in spherical-like aberrations demonstrated hyperopic or only a slight myopic shift.

Keywords: Cataract surgery, aftercataract, Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy, high-order aberration.
