Following cataract surgery, it’s possible to experience issues with the lens membrane. It can become thickened, which may negatively affect your vision. This issue is considered to be the most common cataract surgery complication.
A YAG laser capsulotomy is the one treatment option for this cataract surgery complication. This is a noninvasive procedure with a relatively high success rate. It is also quick. Most people go home the same day, making it a convenient choice to restore your vision.
The YAG laser is the laser used to clear the frosting from the back surface of an intraocular lens. YAG laser treatment is painless and is completed from outside the eye in a few minutes.
