YAG Capsulotomy

YAG Capsulotomy

One of the most common problems after cataract surgery is clouding of the membrane around the lens. The membrane is referred to as the posterior capsule, and once the membrane becomes opacified, the condition is termed posterior capsule opacification. A cloudy posterior capsule causes blurry vision, but this condition can be treated easily and safely with a laser treatment in the office or outpatient center.

Laser capsulotomy does not require going to the operating room and nor does it involve any incisions into the eye. It only takes a few minutes and is painless.

  • Dilation of the eye is done with eye drops.
  • A laser removes the hazy posterior capsule from your line of sight without making an incision or touching the eye.
  • Drops may be given after the procedure to reduce inflammation.

Your vision will improve very quickly after the procedure. You do not have to alter your usual activities. The procedure is extremely safe. Very rarely complications do occur and they will be discussed with Dr. Feulner before undergoing the procedure.
