A retrospective study of 1,000 cases that had Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy after cataract surgery is presented. We analyzed the correlation of the patient's age, axial length of the eye, method of cataract surgery, and laser parameters (exposures, energy, and burst mode) with the incidence of retinal detachment (1.6% overall). The highest risk for… CONTINUE READING
