When cataract surgery is performed, the lens is removed leaving the capsule in place. A lens implant is inserted in front of the capsule. If the capsule becomes blurry (secondary cataract), it can be treated with a YAG laser. The pamphlet describes getting ready for laser, the laser treatment and care after laser. Vision is usually clearer shortly after the treatment.
