2014-08-27 03:19:50 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Cataract is a leading cause of Global blindness. After cataract surgery nearly half of the people become blind due to posterior capsular opacification. The only solution for this problem is LASER capsulotomy. Laser machine is not available in remote areas especially in underdeveloped countries. The solution of this problem is surgical capsulotomy which can be performed any where.

Description

posterior capsular opacification is treated by YAG laser capsulotomy. this require sophisticated technology ans specific environment which is not possible in underdeveloped countries. we describe a method in which posterior capsular opacification could be managed by using only a 27 Gauge needle through pars plana. opacified posterior capsule is under tension that is why a small puncture results in a large central opening
