    Surgery for cataract removal has become successively refined such that posterior capsular opacification is the most common problem presenting after modern cataract extraction. Various techniques and treatments exist to manage patients with posterior capsular opacification using Nd:YAG capsulotomy. There are many possible variations in initial assessment, pre-laser treatments, laser techniques, and follow-up routines. The literature on the use of Nd:YAG laser for capsulotomy was reviewed and interpreted. This article presents the currently available knowledge in a format that allows the practitioner to tailor an evidence-based protocol for treating patients with symptomatic posterior capsule opacification.
