YAG Capsulotomy

Some cataract patients experience cloudy vision months, or even years, after the cataract procedure. This condition is caused by a “film” that develops behind the intraocular lens. A YAG (Yttrium Aluminum Garnet) capsulotomy is performed to restore the refraction of light reaching the retina. It is a painless office procedure which takes just minutes to perform. There are no activity restrictions following the procedure.
