This pamphlet is a French translation of the English pamphlet 2327, "Making Health Care Decisions for Someone Else: Acting as a Substitute Decision Maker (SDM)". Sometimes a patient is not able to make decisions about their own health care. This may be because they are very sick or have been seriously injured. When this happens, another person is asked to make health care decisions for them. This person is called a substitute decision-maker. This pamphlet explains what to expect when you are asked to act as a substitute-decision-maker. A list of definitions is also provided.
The Arabic version of this pamphlet 2349, is also available.

A cataract is when the lens in your eye gets cloudy over time. The lens sits in a capsule (clear sac). 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 gets 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 p…

Abstract
A cataract is when the lens in your eye gets cloudy over time. The lens sits in a capsule (clear sac). 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 gets 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. The French version of this pamphlet 1947, "Capsulotomie au laser YAG", is also available.
