Removing the haze capsule is a very minor procedure where the eye only needs to be dilated. Before the procedure, your doctor will put some special eye drops in your eyes to dilate and numb the eye’s front. Your head will then be rested on the frame of the YAG laser machine in order for your doctor to focus the laser onto the capsule.
The laser will be used to make small holes into the capsule to remove the haziness, or opacity, of the posterior capsule thus allowing light to pass through it. The light then goes to the nerve layer in the back of your eye (the retina) which will improve your vision.
Because the procedure doesn’t require any incision, you won’t feel any pain or be at risk of developing any infections.
