YAG Laser Capsulotomy

When one of the physicians at Eye Surgeons & Consultants performs cataract surgery, the surgeon carefully opens the capsular bag that holds the lens in place.After opening the front portion of the capsule the natural lens is removed and the intraocular lens is positioned inside the capsular bag. After cataract surgery the capsule may become cloudy which can cause blurry, hazy vision. This posterior capsular haze can simply be treated using a YAG laser. The patients pupil is dilated and the laser creates an opening in the center of the cloudy capsule. Most patients notice improvement immediately, while others will notice a gradual improvement over several days. YAG capsulotomy is performed in the office and takes just a minute to perform.

Laser Treatment of the Retina Laser photocoagulation is performed in the office and is one way of treating abnormal blood vessels that grow out of the retina. Laser can be used to treat diabetic retinopathy, wet age related macular degeneration, retinal tears and holes, and other retinal vascular disorders. A laser beam is a light beam that can be placed with pinpoint accuracy. Depending upon the disorder it may be necessary to receive more than one treatment with laser. In most cases when one of the doctors at Eye Surgeons & Consultants is treating a patient with laser photocoagulation a fluorescein angiogram will be requested by the physician.
