YAG Laser Capsulotomy Santa Rosa, CA

The wonderful thing about laser cataract surgery is that it is actually a “cure”; the original cataract never comes back.

However, following surgery, some patients can develop a “secondary cataract”, a haziness of the posterior capsule of the original lens. Years ago, patients would need to go back to the Operating Room to have a tiny surgical opening made in this “secondary cataract”.

Today, patients can easily and safely be treated using a laser to create the opening. This procedure restores optimal vision to patients with minimal inconvenience and no pain. Most patients notice an immediate improvement as soon as their pupils, which have been dilated, return to their regular size.

This fairly noninvasive procedure, known either as a YAG Laser, or a Laser Posterior, Capsulotomy, can be a simple and fast option to clear up any cloudiness. It can take less than five minutes and requires no anesthesia.


YAG is short for a special laser, composed of a synthetic crystal-like material called Yttrium Aluminum Garnet, used in the YAG Laser procedure.
