Abstract
On parle d’une cataracte quand le cristallin de votre œil devient trouble ou opaque avec le temps. Le cristallin se trouve dans une capsule (ou enveloppe). Pendant la chirurgie, le cristallin opaque est enlevé, mais la capsule demeure en place. Une lentille intraoculaire est placée à l’avant de la capsule. Jusqu’à la moitié des capsules des personnes qui ont subi une chirurgie pour la cataracte deviendront brumeuses elles aussi. Quand cela se produit, la vision devient trouble. Cette opacité peut être traitée au moyen d’un laser YAG. Le laser YAG est utilisé pour faire une ouverture dans la capsule (capsulotomie), comme lorsque l’on fait un trou dans une pellicule d’emballage en plastique. La vision est généralement plus claire 1 à 2 journées après le traitement. La présente brochure explique comment se préparer, ce qui se passe pendant le traitement et à quoi s’attendre après. On y présente aussi une liste des complications possibles.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 0464, “YAG Laser Capsulotomy”. A cataract is when the lens in your eye gets cloudy over time. The lens sits in a capsule. During surgery, the cloudy lens is removed, leaving the capsule in place. A lens implant is put in front of the capsule. In up to half of patients who have had cataract surgery, the capsule also becomes cloudy. When this happens, vision becomes blurred. This cloudiness can be treated with a YAG laser. The YAG laser is used to make an opening in the capsule (capsulotomy), like making a hole in a piece of plastic wrap. Vision is usually clearer 1 to 2 days after the treatment. The pamphlet describes getting ready for treatment, what happens during, and what to expect after. A list of possible complications are given.
