During cataract surgery, the intraocular lens, which has become cloudy, is permanently removed and replaced with an implant lens. Once removed, the cataract can never come back. However, the thin membrane that holds the implant lens in place can eventually become hazy and cause blurry vision. If this occurs, our surgeons can perform a YAG laser capsulotomy to restore your clear vision. The procedure is painless and takes only a few minutes to perform in the office. It involves using a laser to create a small opening in the thin membrane while leaving the implant lens untouched.
