We report a case of complete occlusion of capsulorrhexis opening in a patient with chronic angle closure glaucoma with fixed–dilated pupil in the following 2 weeks after an uneventful cataract surgery. The capsulorrhexis diameter was intended to make between 5.0 mm and 5.5 mm, to prevent photophobia afterward. There was no evidence of zonular weakness on preoperative examination or during the surgery. Nd:YAG anterior capsulotomy was performed for capsular phimosis and to enlarge capsulor-rhexis. The patient regained her visual acuity 3 days after laser treatment, and no pseudophakodonesis, intraocular lens decentration, and re-phimosis were noted at the 3-month follow-up.
