YAG capsulotomy is a special laser treatment used to improve your vision after cataract surgery. It is a simple, commonly performed procedure which is very safe. During your cataract operation, the natural lens inside your eye that had become cloudy was removed. A new plastic lens was put inside the lens membrane (called the bag or capsule) in your eye, In a small number of patients, the capsule thickens after surgery and becomes cloudy. This interferes with the light reaching the back of the eye. When this happens, your sight becomes blurry. YAG laser capsulotomy is the only way to treat this. In a YAG laser capsulotomy, your doctor used a special lens to apply a laser beam to the capsule. This creates a small hole in the center of the capsule, which allows light through to improve your vision.
