What are the risks associated with a posterior capsulotomy?
APR 16, 2013
What are the risks associated with a posterior capsulotomy after cataract surgery? I was scheduled to have one but canceled because of what I read on the internet.
Using the YAG laser to do this is not true surgery because no incision is required. Vision-threatening problems are extremely rare and you would be better off trusting your ophthalmologist’s judgment rather than basing your decision on unfiltered internet information. Raise your concerns with your ophthalmologist.
