YAG Capsulotomy

After cataract surgery, the back surface of the capsule that holds the lens in place commonly becomes hazy. This occurs very quickly in some patients, and quite slowly in others. Ultimately, about 30% of patients will eventually experience some loss of vision due to this haziness. Fortunately, there is a very quick “no touch” laser procedure called a YAG Posterior Capsulotomy that removes the hazy capsule and restores the clarity of vision that has been lost.
