IN about 50% 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”.

However, this 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 made painlessly in the centre of the posterior membrane with a YAG laser.

This procedure can be done at the 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.
