YAG Capsulotomy

Several states allow properly trained optometrists to perform certain anterior segment laser procedures, one of which is YAG posterior capsulotomy. This course covers all facets of YAG laser capsulotomy. The formation of posterior capsule opacification, indications for YAG capsulotomy, and contraindications for the procedure are all covered. In addition, the performance of the procedure is covered in detail, as are potential complications and post-operative care.
