We report our observation of a distinct membrane on the posterior surface of the Hydroview (Bausch & Lomb Surgical) intraocular lens during laser capsulotomy in 6 patients. In 3 patients, the retrolental membrane was noted during 4 to 6 weeks of follow-up after laser capsulotomy. The technique of a 2-stage laser capsulotomy in this group of patients is described. The possible cause and significance for this observation are also discussed.
