Iris epithelium detachment – An uncommon complication of Nd: YAG laser capsulotomy

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Purpose: To report a case of iris epithelium detachment following Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy. Observations: We describe the case of an 81 year old woman who developed hyphema and detachment of the iris epithelium following standard Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy. The detachment was readily visualized using anterior segment OCT. The hyphema was managed with topical atropine and steroids. The detachment itself was left untreated. Conclusions and importance: No persisting subjective complaints or effect on visual function were noted. To our knowledge, this complication represents a novel observation.
