Months or even years after cataract surgery, you may experience cloudy, blurry vision and/or glare and halos around lights at night, symptoms similar to when you had a cataract. During your cataract operation, the natural lens inside your eye was removed and an intraocular lens was placed inside of the lens membrane (also called a bag or a capsule). In about fifty percent of post-surgical cataract patients, the capsule will become hazy sometime after surgery. This interferes with light reaching the back of the eye, causing the need for Dr. Collins to perform a Yag Laser Capsulotomy which will help to restore clear vision. What is a Yag Laser Capsulotomy and What Happens during the Procedure? Your procedure will take place at St. Mark’s Surgical Center. Although the procedure only takes but a minute, you can still expect to be at the surgery center for an hour to an hour and a half total. This is due, in part, to making sure your eye is fully dilated prior to seeing Dr. Collins.
Dexycu is a long-acting, biodegradable extended-release formulation of the anti-inflammatory agent dexamethasone, which is injected into the anterior chamber of the eye following cataract surgery. The one-time injection is administered with Icon's Varisome drug-delivery technology. Related Articles
