    Cataract/Anterior Segment

    Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy. A spiral pattern (A) may reduce the risk of radial tears, but a cruciate pattern (B) or an inverted D pattern (not shown) with an inferior flap hinge allows for initial punctures in the periphery and may help reduce the risk of central IOL laser damage.
