Vitreous prolapse and intraocular lens decentration following neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser posterior capsulotomy is rare. We report a case of a patient who developed blurring of vision, due to vitreous prolapse and decentration of the intraocular lens, following Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy for posterior capsular opacification (PCO), which was restored to complete visual recovery with surgical management. The report aims to highlight the importance of precise focusing, usage of minimum optimal power required, and appropriate sizing of Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy. Although Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy is a safe procedure for treating PCO, it is not free from complications.
