Objective: To determine the efficacy of 0.2% brimonidine eye drops on control of intraocular pressure following Neodymium: Yttrium-Aluminum-Garnet (Nd: YAG) laser posterior capsulotomy.
"Ocular instruments A(r) Abraham Capsulotomy YAG contact lens" was used along with Q-switched Zeiss VISULAS YAG III (Nd: YAG) laser system to make a hole of 3-4mm in the posterior capsule using minimum amount of total laser energy.

Despite advances in cataract extraction surgery, posterior capsule opacification (PCO) is still a common post-operative complication of cataract surgery.
When imaging the mandibular posteriors, the assistant should avoid aggressively pushing the film edges into the tori, lingual borders of the lingual arches, or floor of the mouth.
Unfortunately, the devices can be confusing to assemble because each device consists of three pieces that can be assembled in multiple ways, and there are three types of such devices for anterior, posterior and bitewing radiographs (in addition to a fourth accessory device for taking endodontic radiographs).
The film-holding plane of the posterior film holder is wider than the plane that has the metal prong insertion holes.
The bitewing metal rod is straight with no bends, while the posterior metal rod has one 90 degree bend.
INTRODUCTION: Occlusion and occlusion plane is the primary criteria in the fabrication of posterior restorations.
In normal natural dentition, there exists an anteroposterior curve that passes through the cusp tip of the mandibular canine and the buccal cusp tip of the mandibular premolars and molars, and that extends in a posterior direction to pass through the most anterior point of the mandibular condyle, originally described by Ferdinand Graf Spee in 1890.
Restoration of the dentition to such an altered occlusal plane can introduce posterior protrusive interferences.
