IN about 50 percent of patients who have had a cataract removed, the capsule becomes cloudy several months or years after the original surgery.

Often this condition is referred to as a “secondary cataract”.

This, however, does not mean that a patient has developed another cataract - it is only the capsule and not the artificial lens that has become cloudy.

If this cloudiness blurs your vision, a clear opening can be painlessly made in the centre of the posterior membrane with a YAG laser.

This procedure can be done at Tongaat Eye Centre in about 10 to 15 minutes without any injections.

It is a quick and painless procedure, and is covered by all medical aids.

For more information contact the Tongaat Eye Centre on 032 945 0007.
