SUMMARY

A prospective study was conducted to evaluate the effect of pilocarpine in the prevention of intraocular pressure spike after Neodymiun: Yag Laser posterior capsuIotomy.

The mean intraocular pressure rise in the group receiving pilocarpine (34 patients) was 2,38 mmHg, and 5,62 mmHg in the control group (50 patients).

In the group receiving pilocarpine there was only one case of increase of 10 mmHg or more against the 11 patients in the control group. We suggest the prophylatic use of pilocarpine 2% after Nd: Yag Laser posterior capsulotomy.
