    Effects of posterior capsular opacification on the evaluation of retinal nerve fiber layer as measured by stratus optical coherence tomography

    Objective To evaluate the effects of posterior capsular opacification (PCO) and Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy on the evaluation of peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) as measured by Stratus (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA) optical coherence tomography (OCT). Design Prospective interventional case series. Participants We studied 98 eyes of 89 patients experiencing PCO. Methods We performed a complete ophthalmologic examination and evaluation of RNFL as measured by Stratus OCT before and after Nd:YAG capsulotomy. The patients were classified on the basis of PCO score or signal strength (SS) obtained by prelaser OCT scans. Results The preoperative and postoperative peripapillary ...
