YAG Laser Capsulotomy in London

Regain visual clarity with a fast, pain-free laser treatment performed by London specialist Sharmina Khan.

Cataract surgery is one of the most common operations carried out worldwide and though most patients are free from complications, some do require follow-up care to preserve their new level of eyesight. Posterior Capsule Opacification (PCO) occurs when the eye’s lens capsule becomes cloudy behind the synthetic implant, restricting the amount of light reaching the back of the eye and causing post-operative clarity to slip away.

With a simple procedure, Sharmina Khan can restore your eyesight. YAG laser capsulotomy is fast, pain-free and hugely effective.

A YAG laser capsulotomy is a simple procedure that can clear up any cloudiness developing on the eye’s natural lens capsule. First, anaesthetic eye drops are administered to numb the eye and dilate the pupil. Then, the YAG laser is aimed at the rear of the lens capsule where it makes a small hole, enabling light to pass through.

YAG Laser Surgery is a simple procedure that is usually free of complications. As with any surgical procedure, however, there can be some side-effects, including a detached retina, ‘floaters’ caused by the membrane breaking up, increased eye pressure and inflammation.
If you have had cataract surgery in both eyes, you may need YAG Laser Surgery in both eyes too. Generally, PCO occurs within 6 months of cataract surgery, but the condition might develop in each eye at different rates. However, you shouldn’t need laser treatment in the same eye more than once.
