The development of an epithelial implantation cyst is a severe complication of anterior segment surgery and trauma. Two patients with anterior chamber implantation cysts were treated with Nd:YAG laser. One required surgical correction as the cyst reformed after each of 6 laser treatment sessions. In the other patient, the cyst reformed once, and has not recurred for 18 months since the second laser treatment. Collapse of anterior chamber implantation cysts can be achieved with Nd:YAG laser, though multiple treatment sessions may be required due to the cyst's tendency to reform.
