To determine the prevalence of different types of eye complication due to Nd: YAG laser posterior capsulotomy and its correlation with postoperative time duration following cataract surgery. Eyes underwent ND: YAG Laser posterior capsulotomy (on average 6 months to 3 years) after implantation of Intraocular lens (IOL) in posterior chamber of the eye. Determination of different types of Nd: YAG Laser induced complications in relation with postoperative time duration. We found a higher prevalence of post YAG laser AC reaction, Rasised intraocular pressure (IOP), IOL damage, vitreous reaction, macular and retinal damage. Nd: YAG Laser posterior capsulotomy is almost equally safe when performed after six months of cataract surgery.
Key words: Nd:YAG Laser, posterior capsule opacification (PCO), intraocular lens (IOL), anterior chamber (AC), macular edema, vitreous hemorrhage, glaucoma.
