What are the side effects with YAG treatment?

The most common side effect is the presentation of “floaters” but these typically dissipate within a few weeks.  Complications are rare, but may include increased pressure within the eye, a dislocation of the artificial lens implant through the opening that is created in the back portion of the lens capsule, or, rarely, a detached retina.  If you are in a high risk group, your follow-up will be more extensive.
