YAG laser eye surgery is used in ophthalmology to treat a variety of conditions. It is a painless procedure that only takes a few seconds to perform. The YAG laser is commonly used to clear formation of normal scar tissue that develops behind intraocular lenses after cataract surgery. This treatment leads to an immediate improvement in vision. Additionally, the YAG laser is used to clear pupillary membranes, vitreous opacities (floaters), and vitreous membranes that interfere with vision. The YAG laser is also used to perform a peripheral iridectomy in patients with narrow angles and angle closure glaucoma.
