Manjula Mangane, Vishwanath Reddy, Rajashree Reddy.

Abstract
Background: Posterior capsular opacification and other related complications are naturally associated long-term complications of extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE). Neodymium:Yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser is an effective treatment for posterior capsulotomy.

Objectives: To assess the effects and complication on visual acuity following Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy after ECCE with or without intraocular lens (IOL) implantation.

Materials and Methods: A total of 100 patients in between 15 and 85 years age group with significant complications after performing pre-laser assessment were subjected to laser treatment. The treatment is done as an outpatient procedure using VISUALS YAG-II Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. Post-laser treatment follow-up was done after 24 h, 1 week, 1 month, and 6 months interval for the improvement in visual acuity and to detect complications.

Results: Pre-laser visual acuity was
