YAG Laser Capsulotomy


YAG laser capsulotomy is a common procedure used to treat posterior capsule opacification, a condition that can occur after cataract surgery. During the procedure, a laser is used to create a small opening in the cloudy capsule, allowing light to pass through and improve vision. The procedure is typically performed in an outpatient setting and takes only a few minutes to complete. Complications are rare, but can include increased eye pressure or retinal detachment. Overall, YAG laser capsulotomy is a safe and effective treatment option for posterior capsule opacification.
