Anterior capsular contraction syndrome can cause a remarkable loss of sight in the postoperative period, requiring early laser or surgical treatment for visual rehabilitation. Despite several studies comparing the outcomes of femtolaser cataract surgery and conventional phacoemulsification, the incidence of anterior capsular contraction after laser cataract surgery is not known. We present a case of severe anterior capsular contraction with total occlusion of capsular opening in a patient after 7 weeks of uneventful femtolaser-assisted cataract surgery, who was treated with neodymium: yttrium aluminum garnet laser anterior capsulotomy. There is no other published report of complete occlusion of femtolaser capsulotomy by capsular contraction and fibrosis.
