What is YAG capsulotomy for posterior Capsular Opacities?

YAG capsulotomy is a laser treatment for one of the most prevalent conditions resulting in reduced vision complications following cataract surgery. This means that the membrane, also called the posterior capsule, has become opacified [posterior capsule opacification (PCO)], causing blurred vision.

A YAG laser capsulotomy is used as standard treatment for this condition, and is intended to improve a patient's vision. It uses a Yttrium-Aluminium Garnet (YAG) laser. It is a simple, safe and painless procedure, and usually takes 2-3 minutes to complete.
