YAG Laser Capsulotomy

Once a cataract has been removed, it can never come back. However, the thin membrane that holds the implant lens in place can become hazy and cause blurry vision. If this happens, our surgeons can perform a YAG laser capsulotomy to restore your clear vision.

This is a painless procedure and takes only a few minutes to perform in the office. Our surgeon uses a laser to create a small opening in the thin membrane while leaving the implant lens unchanged.
