Ivanov AN. [Results of Nd-YAG laser effects in manifest exudative reaction after implantation of intraocular lens]. Vestn Oftalmol. 2002;118(3):13-5.
Thirteen patients (16 eyes) with artiphakia developed exudative reaction with formation of fibrinous conglomeration occupying up to 2/3 of the anterior chamber volume. Noninvasive YAG laser exposure was carried out to destroy the conglomeration. Complete cleansing of the anterior chamber and IOL was attained in 2-7 sessions (energy 0.8-8.0 mJ, up to 100 pulses). The difference in the periods between relapses and the number of relapses decreased after each exacerbation. YAG laser exposure destroyed the exudative conglomeration and stimulated its lysis with the minimum complications. Hence, Nd:YAG laser exposure is a promising method of choice.
