Sometimes the effects of treatment for types of eye surgery involving lasers can fade a few months or years after the treatment even though it normally provides excellent results.  This is simply a side-effect of the treatment, where the replacement lens put into your eye begins to thicken and turn hazy. This is known as ‘posterior capsule opacification’. It can be treated relatively easily with a treatment called a YAG laser capsulotomy. 

The purpose of a YAG laser capsulotomy is simple— to return your vision to the standard that it was after your initial treatment.
YAG laser capsulotomy is designed to bring your vision back up to the level that it was after your initial surgery. During the treatment, a state-of-the-art laser makes a very small opening in the middle of the artificial lens in your eye, allowing you to see clearly again.
The YAG laser will make an opening in the centre of the posterior capsule about the size of your pupil creating a clear visual pathway.
Many YAG patients notice an improvement in their vision relatively quickly.
