A Yag Laser Capsulotomy is performed when the hazy capsule starts to affect your daily lifestyle due to decreased vision or glare. Most commonly this is between 6 months and 3 years after your primary surgery but it may happen sooner or much later. It is important, however, to wait at least three to four months after your cataract surgery for the procedure to ensure that your intraocular lens is stable. If a bilateral procedure is being recommended, the eyes will be performed separately to ensure safety and an optimal outcome.
