Posterior Capsulotomy

Many times, when patients have cataract surgery, the capsular bag which remains in the eye, becomes cloudy over time. This condition can be corrected with an in-office laser procedure.

capsulotomy-exampleOn surgery day plan to arrive at the surgery center approximately one hour before your scheduled surgery time. Once you have been checked in, you will begin to receive preparation for your procedure. These preparations will include cleaning of your eye and instilling anesthetic numbing drops into the surgery eye. You may also receive a sedative to help you relax if you are apprehensive.

You will receive nothing by injection – no needles! When your eye is totally numb, a nurse will place an eyelid holder between the lids to stop any involuntary blinking.

At the conclusion of your procedure, which takes about five minutes, you may receive additional eye drops, along with instructions on how to use them.

Serious complications of this type of ophthalmic procedure are extremely rare. However, most all patients experience some side effects. Most of these side effects are mild and eventually go away.
