YAG Capsulotomy

Following cataract surgery, the remaining capsule can sometimes opacify, causing vision to decrease. When that happens, we perform a Yag Capsulotomy. It is a laser that removes the membrane causing the opacification. This is done in our Tuesday morning clinic. There is no preparation required, and it takes all of 10 seconds to do. Your vision may become temporarily blurry following the laser so it is best to have a driver with you. See the video below to learn more about this type of laser.

Laser Peripheral Iridotomy

Prior to a DMEK or DSAEK transplant, we will do a laser peripheral iridotomy. This is a laser that helps to prevent intraocular pressure increase post surgery. This is done in our Tuesday morning clinic. There is no preparation required, and it takes all of 10 seconds to do. Your vision may become temporarily blurry following the laser so it is best to have a driver with you.
