Abstract Details


To assess the effect of varying energy levels and anti-inflammatory drops on change in macular thickness (MT) after Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy for posterior capsular opacification (PCO).


tertiary eye care hospital


Patients who underwent uneventful phacoemulsification with in the bag IOL implantation by the same surgeon were followed up for 6 months for PCO formation Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy was done and change in macular thickness was assessed by OCT caliper before and after 1 week of capsulotomy Based on energy used in epithelial and fibrous PCO, patients were divided into two groups Group-1 (0-50mJ) Group-2 (>50mJ) Anti-inflammatory drops 0.03% flurbiprofen and 0.1% nepafenac were randomly used in the 2 groups post YAG capsulotomy


Mean age of the patient 62.79 ± 13.9 years Mean UCVA & BCVA in Group-1 was 0.28 ± 0.20 & 0.05 ± 0.09 by LogMAR Mean UCVA & BCVA in Group-2 was 0.54 ± 0.94 & 0.07 ± 0.10 by LogMAR.In group 1,pre macular thickness was 205 ±19.08 which increased to 203.4 ± 28.44.In group 2 pre macular thickness was 211.8 ±19.54 which increased to 224.7 ± 27.68.So the mean macular thickness in group 1 and 2 was 1.61 and 12.9 respectively.


The change in MT following Nd:YAG capsulotomy is significant when the total energy used is above 50mJ irrespective of the anti-inflammatory drops administered
