Abstract Details

Purpose:

To investigate the clinical safety and efficacy of Nd:YAG laser vitreolysis in patients with prolonged history of floaters resulting in posterior vitreous detachment (PVD), particarly patients with Restor acrysof IOLs

Setting:

All patients were treated in the Riverland Hospital Tiel, the Netherlands between 2003 and 2014.

Methods:

A prospective analysis of 15 eyes with restor out of 150 eyes with membranotomy with 9 months, or longer , history of floaters secondary to PVD. The treatment was performed using a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser.

Results:

The average age of the patients was 70 yr. There was a self reported post-operative visual improvement among the patients at a rate of 85%.

Conclusions:

The results support the use of YAG laser vitreolysis for floater displacement among patients with a history of floaters that are secondary to PVD and persist for at least 9 months. Over a 10-year follow-up period, safety of the procedure was indicated by the absence of any complications among YAG-treated patients.
