Capsular bag distension syndrome (CBDS) is a rare complication of cataract surgery characterized by collection of turbid fluid between the posterior surface of the intraocular lens (IOL) and the posterior capsule. Here, we report a case of CBDS presenting 7 years after uneventful cataract surgery. Patient presented with blurring of vision in the right eye and his best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 6/9 N6. Slit lamp examination showed collection of turbid fluid between IOL and posterior capsule, and the opaque fibrosed capsulorhexis margin was adherent to the optic of IOL which was well placed within the bag. Patient underwent neodymium yttrium aluminium garnet (ND-YAG) laser posterior capsulotomy to release the fluid into the vitreous cavity. 6 weeks after the procedure his BCVA improved to 6/6 N6.
