A Nd:YAG (neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet) laser capsulotomy is a procedure used to improve your vision after cataract surgery. It is a simple, safe and commonly performed procedure.
Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy involves directing a laser beam to the thickened capsule. This creates a small opening in the center of the capsule, allowing light to pass through once again.
