After Cataract Laser Surgery
Did you have cataract surgery?
Are you seeing blurred again?
If you answered “Yes,” you may have an opaque capsule often seen after cataract surgery
An Opaque Capsule can make your vision blurred
If you had cataract surgery and you are having difficulty seeing well enough to do one or more of your daily activities, even when wearing your glasses, you may have an opaque capsule. Symptoms include difficulty to read or sew, see signs in sunny days, watch television, or drive at night.
You may feel as if the cataract has come back because you see blurred or have problems with bright lights and glare.

An opaque capsule can reduce vision
Regain your lost vision
Once the capsule is opened with a laser the vision will return to its unhindered state.
The cataract is held by a thin capsule. Once the cataract is removed, the capsule is used to anchor the implant in place. This capsule can become opaque and hinder vision weeks to years after the cataract surgery.
There has never been a better time to see well!
After Cataract Laser Surgery
We know you want to see well!
The cataract has a thin capsule around it inside the eye. When operated, the cataract is removed and is replaced with implants. The capsule heals holding the implant in place. Sometimes the healing process affects the center of the capsule. This reduces vision and the person cannot see as well as right after the cataract surgery.
We recommend cleaning or opening the opaque capsule when the patient has the symptoms described above, the capsule is opaque in the eye exam, and the vision has decreased.
Glare with bright lights or at night is a common symptom. We can determine how much glare reduces your vision with an instrument that allow us to measure what you see in a well it room, in a cloudy day, or in a sunny day.Call now and make an appointment today!
