Regain clear vision with YAG laser capsulotomy after cataract surgery

YAG laser capsulotomy restores your sight to the levels it was after your cataract or lens replacement surgery

Your vision is restored

If you’ve experienced the wonders of cataract surgery or lens replacement, it can be disappointing when your lovely crisp vision starts to fade. This is often due to a cloudy layer behind your lens implant called capsule opacification. Fortunately, I can quickly and easily treat this issue with a procedure called YAG laser capsulotomy. Your vision will be crystal clear again in no time.

The purpose of our lives is to be happy

The procedure takes just a few minutes. You’ll soon be back to seeing again as you did just after your cataract surgery as you regain that sense of freedom and convenience that you so truly deserve.

Move forward with confidence

There is no downtime required after YAG laser capsulotomy, so you can return to your everyday activities immediately. It is also highly unlikely for the capsule opacification to return so you can move forward in life with confidence.

Stop waiting and start living

In today’s climate of long post-lockdown waiting lists and uncertainty around treatment options, many people aren’t getting the clear and personal service they desire. My patients don’t have to wait. Once they’ve decided to move forward with YAG laser capsulotomy, we will secure a date in the diary and help you regain that wonderful clear and vibrant vision.

YAG laser capsulotomy helps you reclaim clear vision after cataract surgery

If you’d like to know the ins and outs of YAG laser treatment we have all the information you need below

YAG laser capsulotomy suitability criteria

You may be suitable for this treatment If you’ve had cataract or lens replacement surgery in the past and your vision has become “cloudy” and “misty” again.

To ensure you are a good candidate, we will examine you and confirm that the capsule behind your lens is becoming opacified.

How lens YAG laser capsulotomy works

We use a laser to remove the cloudy capsule behind your lens implant. This restores your sight to the levels it was after your cataract or lens replacement surgery.

Advantages and disadvantages of YAG laser capsulotomy

Advantages

  • It is a quick and painless procedure that we perform in the clinic
  • Your vision will rapidly improve after the laser
  • It is highly unlikely that capsule opacification will occur again
  • No risk of infection

Disadvantages

  • Unfortunately, the procedure may not work for everyone
  • No laser procedure is entirely risk-free

YAG laser capsulotomy risks

Any laser procedure carries an element of risk which I will discuss with you in detail at your appointment. Some include:

  • Inflammation of the eye
  • Floaters
  • Swelling or detachment of the retina
  • Reduced vision

YAG laser capsulotomy options and alternatives

Unfortunately, there is no alternative to YAG laser capsulotomy.

YAG laser capsulotomy steps

I perform laser treatment in the clinic as a day treatment. The entire process takes less than 5 minutes.

Step one: Before treatment, I administer eye drops to prepare and “numb” the eye.

Step two: I ask you to look at a light whilst I perform the laser. You’ll hear a series of “clicks.”

Step three: I may give you anti-inflammatory eye drops to use.

YAG laser capsulotomy results

YAG laser capsulotomy is a very successful and effective way to improve your vision.

If you have no other eye issues, YAG laser will restore your vision to the way it was after your cataract or lens replacement surgery.

Hear how they stopped waiting and started living again

My vision has improved tremendously, and it’s like having HDTV installed! Once again, many thanks.

Mr PL
To Mr Nguyen, Thank you so very much, the berries are very red, as are the traffic lights…and I can see my cat’s whiskers!
Mrs GE
I never thought I would describe eye surgery as a pleasant experience, but it was; you are a gifted person. I am sure you have heard this many times before, but the contrast before and after such a short surgery is truly remarkable.
Mr MH
I never imagined the difference it would make, black and grey cows now look black and white! Such an amazing difference. I consider, we, as human beings are very privileged to be able to have this treatment.
Mrs LB
I cannot thank you enough for the care and attention given to me during my recent cataract removals. As someone of a somewhat nervous disposition, you made the whole experience less stressful than otherwise it might have been.
Mrs MF

It is now just over a year since you carried out the procedure on my second eye. I still awake in wonder each morning when I wake and can see clearly.

Mr BC
Thank you for the new lens you fitted to my right eye. I cannot believe how much better my vision is – massive improvement for driving.
Mr BF

I was facing the possibility of being unable to drive because of poor vision, but now, after 70 plus years of wearing spectacles, I no longer need them! Amazing! Added to that, my snooker has improved enormously!

Mr DV

The miraculous improvement from my extreme short-sightedness coupled with cataracts in both eyes is a massive life change, and I am enormously grateful to you all. I wish to thank you most sincerely for all the expertise, care and kindness shown to me.

Mrs CJ

From my initial consultation through to walking out the door following surgery, I found the whole process to be fantastic and could not have wished for a nicer experience.

Mr SC

I am very pleased to say my eyesight is so much better. I am so delighted that I can see very clearly again, no blurred vision at all. It’s brilliant.

Mrs ML

I am writing to thank you and your wonderful team in enabling me to see a world that I almost forgot existed. The vibrancy of colour and brightness are a joy to behold.

Mrs CS
