Secondary Cataract/YAG Laser
Posterior Capsule Opacity and Laser Capsulotomy
One of the most common changes after cataract surgery is a clouding of the membrane around the lens. The membrane is called the posterior capsule, and once the membrane becomes opacified, the condition is termed “posterior capsule opacification.” A cloudy posterior capsule causes blurry vision, but this condition can be treated easily and safely with a laser cataract treatment in our Atlanta office or outpatient center. The procedure just takes a few minutes to perform, many patients drive themselves to the appointment, and full activities are resumed soon after the procedure.
