The centripetal constriction and fibrosis of the capsulorhexis following cataract surgery are known as anterior capsule phimosis. A 44-year-old myopic female who underwent uneventful phacoemulsification with in-the-bag intraocular lens implantation in the right eye presented 2 months later with cloudy vision due to significant capsular phimosis. Her best-corrected visual acuity was 20/32 in the right eye. She underwent femtosecond laser-assisted capsulotomy using a power of 10 μJ. Femtosecond laser is a more precise and predictable method of treating anterior capsule phimosis as compared to the existing treatment modalities, such as neodymium: YAG capsular opening.
