Following cataract surgery, an opaque membrane or “secondary cataract” sometimes forms. This occurs as a result of the progressive loss of the transparency of the crystalline lens capsule.
During cataract surgery, this capsule is left in place to act as a natural support for the intraocular lens that is inserted in your eye.
The visual symptoms caused by this opaci cation are similar to those of a cataract (reduced or blurred vision).
Using an Nd: YAG laser, an opening is made in the capsule to clear your vision.
