We report a case of rapid cataract progression after Nd: YAG vitreolysis for vitreous floaters. A 55-year-old man presented with acute onset of blurred vision following Nd: YAG vitreolysis for symptomatic floaters in the left eye. His initial best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/1,000 in the left eye. Ocular examinations showed frost-like opacities of the lens and a suspected break of the posterior capsule in the left eye. There were no detectable retinal lesions. Cataract surgery was then arranged. Posterior capsular rupture and vitreous loss occurred during surgery, which required a subsequent pars plana vitrectomy. After the surgery, BCVA in the left eye gradually improved to 20/20 and was maintained during a 1-year follow-up period.
