Laser Capsulotomy

We are delighted to offer a private one stop YAG laser posterior capsulotomy service for patients referred directly by their optometrist for treatment of posterior capsule opacification.


What is posterior capsule opacification (PCO)?

During cataract surgery, the artificial lens is inserted into the
natural transparent lens capsule. Over time this capsule can
cloud over impairing the vision.

How is PCO treated?

YAG laser posterior capsulotomy is a quick and painless laser
treatment. Laser energy is used to clear the clouded capsule to
allow a clear passage of light to the retina and restore vision.
