• Is YAG capsulotomy safe with EDS?


    Question:

    Is YAG capsulotomy safe with hypermobile EDS (or Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a disease that affects connective tissue)?


    Answer:

    If the lens implant (intraocular lens) is stable there is no reason a YAG capsulotomy—a laser treatment needed for some people after cataract surgery—cannot be done.
