An Aid for achieving the ideal laser posterior capsulotomy
A 2.5- to 4-mm well-centered laser posterior capsulotomy would be ideal. A 2-mm posterior capsulotomy which is well-centered in the pupil region may be adequate. Laser posterior capsulotomies larger than 5 mm is not necessary and if not wellcentered may extend over the optic of intraocular lens risking vitreous coming forward around the optic if the anterior capsulorrhexis does not cover the edge of the optic completely. Too large a posterior capsulotomy may also risk posterior migration of intraocular lens with the plate haptic intraocular lens. ...
