One of the most common cause of decrease of vision in a pseudophakic patient is the formation of posterior capsular opacification (PCO) which is affected by several factors like the design of the implanted intraocular lens (IOL) and material of the IOL. PCO incidence has been reported to be 20.7% at 2 years & 28.5% at 5 years. Decrease of vision because of PCO necessitates a posterior capsulotomy with neodymium yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd-YAG) laser to create a small opening in the developed opacification. It is a commonly performed relatively safe procedure associated with rare complications like increased intraocular pressure, iritis, IOL Pitting, macular edema, retinal haemorrhage, retinal detachment and endophthalmitis. Herein documenting a case of IOL decentration occurring as an acute complication post Yag Cap leading to decrease of the visual acuity of the patient which has been rarely documented in any of the many articles on Yag complications.
