What Is A YAG Laser Capsulotomy?
At Bentz Eye Center in West Palm Beach, FL, our board-certified ophthalmologists complete YAG laser capsulotomy for patients after their cataract surgery. Sometimes, after undergoing cataract surgery, patients experience cloudiness within the natural capsule that holds their lens. Also known as posterior capsular opacification (PCO), this condition can impact your vision, and it may seem like you have cataracts again. Luckily, we can easily perform YAG laser capsulotomy to remove the cloudiness and restore the clarity of your new lens. If you have noticed blurry vision, double vision, glares, or other abnormal issues following your cataract surgery, please call our board-certified ophthalmologist to learn more.

"I have been going to Bentz for 25 years. I missed 2020 because of covid. So I just went in April 2021, didn't know it had been sold. My insurance was accepted only to find out that it is for Medical only and then they say that now I have to pay for prescription. I have never ever had to. But my insurance is different. I need to get glasses so I had to pay, felt like I was being robbed. But no one tells you that the lens and glasses office are an independent corporation and doesn't take your insurance yet. Never going back. The front staff were nice and the doctor was polite. But this nickel and dime was not friendly. I understand they also had other complaints. No up front information so you can make a better decision."- M.R. / Google / May 25, 2021

What Can I Expect from My YAG Laser Capsulotomy?
We will start the procedure by dilating your eyes so we can see your capsule in detail. Next, we comfortably sit you in front of the YAG laser and a targeted beam of light goes behind your artificial lens. Once the light reaches the capsule, the intense light energy will send pulses that reduce the cloudiness. Following your procedure, you will experience blurry vision for a couple of hours because we dilated your eyes. However, once it goes away, you’ll notice improvement by the next day.
