What is the Recovery Time for YAG Capsulotomy?
The eye(s) that have been lasered may feel a bit dazzled for a little while (minutes – hours) after the procedure, but usually the improvement in vision will be apparent as soon as an hour after the procedure.
There is no ‘recovery time’ because you can do everything as normal when you get home. It is fine to get the eye wet, read and watch television and you can do your regular exercise or sport.
Routine follow up is not normally required after YAG capsulotomy, but please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns.
YAG capsulotomy generally does not alter your glasses prescription, but if you are due for an eye test you can see your optometrist for refraction (glasses check) around 4-5 weeks after YAG capsulotomy.
“My vision in the right eye has improved greatly. And no side effects apart from the floater.”
PW February 2021
“Thank you for your expertise, the improvement was noticeable even before I got to the reception desk!”
BB December 2020
“…so many thanks for your skill and kindness.”
AB December 2020
“Just wanted to thank you for seeing me yesterday afternoon and carrying out the YAG capsulotomy on my left eye. After a few blurry hours my eyes settled down and I now have great vision once more. Thank you so much. You are an absolute star…always so helpful, kind and friendly. I really appreciate all you have done to help improve my sight.”
JM December 2020
“Many thanks for your care and consideration during my laser eye procedure for posterior capsular opacification. Everything has been well following the procedure. The transient floaters disappeared after only two days and my vision restored to the state it was in after my cataract operation.”
JC November 2020
“… the procedure has worked perfectly and my left eye can now see as clearly as it could before the clouding started. There have been no signs of any of the side-effects mentioned in the information leaflet and I have no had any discernible floaters.”
RR November 2020
“Some floaters as you predicted and occasionally a black spot but certainly not lots of them so I think all is fine. The vision in that eye is hugely improved even to the point that the other eye now seems poor in comparison!”
MB November 2020
“L YAG. My eye is great!”
SS November 2020
“A truly wonderful result! The eyes are so much better, thank you.”
