Other Laser Surgery

After Cataract Laser Surgery (Yag Capsulotomy).
Yag Capsulotomy involves making a small opening in cloudy fibrous tissue which forms behind some patients’ intraocular lens following cataract surgery. This cloudy tissue blurs the vision, but a 20-30 second laser treatment makes an opening in this tissue which brings vision back to normal. This treatment is eventually needed in 5-10% of patients who have had cataract surgery; however, it is extremely rare to ever need it repeated.
