YAG laser after cataract surgery
Cataract surgery generally gives very good results. However, some months or even years after treatment your vision may seem to fade. This is not a cataract ‘coming back’ but a common side effect caused by the thickening of the lens capsule.
The lens capsule is part of the natural lens of your eye that supports the lens implant. When it thickens it becomes milky in appearance making things seem hazy.
This is called ‘posterior capsule opacification’ and the treatment for this is a YAG laser capsulotomy.
