What’s involved in a YAG laser capsulotomy?
Your eye surgeon will put drops in your eye to dilate your pupils.
We will use a specialised YAG laser to make a small hole in the posterior capsule (the membrane behind the lens of your eye) removing the posterior capsule opacity or ‘haziness’. This only takes a few minutes and is completely painless.
After the procedure, you shouldn’t feel any discomfort. You’ll be able to go home immediately, and should be able to resume normal activities straight away. We may give you anti-inflammatory eye drops to use for a few days.
