Abstract: Introduction: Cataract remains the single largest cause of blindness worldwide which is curable. The aim of this study is to see the visual outcome after Nd-YAG laser capsulotomy in posterior capsule opacity (PCO) and to study the correlation between PCO and visual acuity before and after Nd-YAG laser capsulotomy. Material and Methods: Nd-YAG laser capsulotomy was carried out in 300 eyes of 300 patients. It was a hospital based prospective study which included patients who underwent small incision cataract surgery (SICS) orphacoemulsification with PCIOL implantation and developed PCO. Results: 95% eyes showed improved vision after Nd-YAG laser capsulotomy. Sex predilection was not found among patients who developed PCO. Majority patients were in the age group of 60-80 years. Conclusion: Nd-YAG laser capsulotomy presented as a noninvasive, effective and relatively safer technique to manage intact posterior capsule opacity.
