YAG Laser - treatment for secondary cataracts

After cataract surgery, the patient's vision can sometimes become as blurred as it was prior to the surgery. This is not a new cataract.

The eye's posterior capsule, which is responsible for holding the artificial lens in place, becomes cloudy, which can interfere with visual acuity. This condition is called a secondary cataract and can develop months, and even years, after surgery.

Secondary cataracts are treated with YAG laser technology: the doctor uses a laser to create a tiny hole in the posterior capsule, allowing light to pass through. This takes a few minutes, does not require hospitalization, and is not painful.
