Abstract

We examined five patients who developed pupillary block after extracapsular cataract extraction. One of the patients also had a posterior chamber intraocular lens implanted at the time of cataract operation. In all five patients, pupillary block was promptly relieved by Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy.
