It produces a concentrated beam of light that can focus on the iris or any thick membrane behind the intra-ocular lens.
This laser beam can create a smooth fine opening of the desired size in these structures without affecting other sensitive parts of the eye.
YAG LASER treatment is done as an Out Patient procedure. Special eye drops are put in the eyes to numb them. A small contact lens may be placed on the eye to direct the laser light on to the desired site. The treatment takes only few minutes and the patient can go back home immediately. Laser surgery is safe and painless with few complications.
