PURPOSE To retrospectively evaluate the incidence of neodymium: YAG (Nd:YAG) laser capsulotomies for posterior capsule opacification (PCO) in eyes receiving one of two types of capsular-bag-fixated silicone posterior chamber intraocular lenses (IOLs) over 7 years. SETTING John Moran Eye Center, University of Utah, Salt Lake City. METHODS Four hundred eighty-eight eyes that had cataract extraction with a continuous curvilinear capsulorhexis and implantation of one of two kinds of silicone… CONTINUE READING
