Posterior Capsular Opacity, PCO or "secondary cataract". can be cleared quickly and easily using a YAG laser.

"Secondary Cataract"
Posterior Capsule Opacification
Treatment Using YAG Laser

During cataract surgery a new lens is placed within the capsular bag behind the iris. The rear wall of this bag is a thin membrane called the posterior capsule.

With time the posterior capsule can become cloudy causing blurry vision, glare and haze.  This opacity is called a Posterior Capsule Opacification (PCO).

PCO is treatable and can be cleared using a YAG laser. This procedure takes just a few minutes, is painless, does not require a hospital admission or anaesthetic and the membrane almost never grows back again.
