Second Eye Surgery or Surgical Touch Up
Wondering if you need a second eye surgery or surgical touch up after cataract surgery,? This article explains why you may need a “touch up” to achieve optimal results.
On a daily basis, I see new patients looking for a second opinion who had a recent eye surgery. They are often concerned that they have not seen much improvement after their initial surgery at another facility. While this is frustrating, there is often a good explanation for the lack of improvement. The good news is we can almost always fix the remaining problems and improve the patient’s vision..
For example, after cataract surgery sometimes there is scar formation. This can easily be fixed using the YAG laser. The YAG Laser removes the scar behind the implanted lens of cataract surgery and in essence improves one’s sight. When I use the YAG laser I apply topical anesthetic (eye drops), dilate the eye and complete the laser procedure under one minute. At Abrams Eye Institute, this laser is done on site without the need to visit a surgery center.
Here is a photo of my patient John being treated with the YAG laser. The YAG laser is just one example of the cutting-edge technology we have at Abrams Eye Institute.
