YAG Capsulotomy

YAG capsulotomy -

A YAG Capsulotomy, also known as a posterior capsulotomy, is a laser surgical procedure performed to treat complications that may occur after cataract surgery. During cataract surgery, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens. However, in some cases, the posterior capsule of the eye may become cloudy, which can result in blurred vision.


Posterior capsular opacification (PCO): PCO is a usual occurrence(complication) after cataract surgery.


When it comes to treatment, YAG capsulotomy is the primary approach for addressing PCO after cataract surgery. It involves using a YAG laser to create a small opening in the clouded posterior lens capsule, allowing light to pass through and improving vision
