YAG Laser Capsulotomy for Posterior capsular opacification:
A small percentage of patients can get gradual blurring of vision 6 months – 3 years after cataract surgery or clear lens extraction due to thickening and wrinkling of a fine membrane behind the intra-ocular lens. This is corrected by an outpatient laser procedure and is not covered by the Lifetime Care Guarantee.
Natural changes in refraction (glasses prescription) can occur independent of laser vision correction (less than 1 diopter spherical or astigmatism change) 1- 2 years after the laser treatment. The small natural shift in refraction is not covered in the comprehensive care guarantee. A small minority of patients have a greater change in their prescription and may benefit from re-treatment – this is provided free of cost if required.*
