Cataracts are a common eye condition that affects millions of people worldwide. They cause a cloudy or foggy vision and can lead to blindness if left untreated. Fortunately, there are treatments available to help improve your vision and reduce the risk of blindness. After the surgery, the implanted lens can become cloudy due to your body trying to heal the implant. This is called Posterior Capsular Opacity (PCO).
At The Eye Center P.A., our team of experienced ophthalmologists are dedicated to providing the best possible care for our patients with cataracts. We use the latest technology and techniques to ensure that our patients receive the best possible outcome from their treatment. YAG laser capsulotomy is the most effective treatment available for PCO today, and we are proud to offer this service.
YAG laser capsulotomy is a safe and effective procedure that uses a laser beam to remove the cloudy or foggy lens capsule that forms around the implanted lens in people with a history of cataract surgery. This procedure helps improve vision by allowing light to pass through more clearly, resulting in improved vision. The procedure typically takes less than 10 minutes and requires no anesthesia or post operative drops.
The results of YAG laser capsulotomy can vary from person to person depending on their individual needs, but most patients experience improved vision within days after having the procedure. As with any medical treatment, there may be some risks associated with this procedure so it’s important that you discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor before making a decision about whether this is right for you.
At The Eye Center P.A., we believe in providing comprehensive care for all our patients who suffer from cloudy vision – including those who choose YAG laser capsulotomy as their preferred treatment option. We want each patient who visits us here at The Eye Center P.A., whether they’re looking for a routine eye exam or considering having YAG laser capsulotomy done, to feel confident knowing they’re getting quality care from experienced professionals who truly understand their needs and concerns.
