A 65-year-old male presented with complaints of glare in LE. He had undergone phacoemulsification with diabetic vitrectomy 10 years back in LE followed by Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy for posterior capsular opacification (PCO) three years later. Slit-lamp examination revealed the presence of Elschnig pearls at the capsulotomy margin (white arrows), extending onto the posterior surface of the posterior capsule [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b, confirmed on anterior segment optical coherent tomography. Elschnig pearls have been known to form around capsular margin and may spontaneously regress.[1] Capsulotomy of a larger size might be considered in post-vitrectomized eyes due to risk of recurrence of PCO.[2],[3]
