This case report describes the use of a Q-switched neodymium:YAG laser to puncture miotic cysts. Fifteen shots of 0.06 mJ were needed. The pupil dilated more widely following this procedure, resulting in an improvement in the patient's visual field. Intraocular pressure (IOP) was not able to be controlled medically, however, and filtering surgery 20 days post laser treatment was required. IOP control had been poor prior to the laser-treatment, and did not appear to be more following treatment.
