Cataract YAG Capsulotomy

Several months or years after a cataract is removed, part of the capsule (the lens covering that supports the artificial lens implant) can become cloudy, affecting clarity of vision. This is called posterior capsule opacification, or PCO. With YAG laser posterior capsulotomy, your ophthalmologist makes an opening in the center of the cloudy capsule with a laser to allow light to pass through the lens properly again.
