Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi...this is an issue I deal with very frequently. Give me a minute to type your answer.
I'm happy that your YAG went smoothly. You are correct that the fragments of the cloudy posterior capsule disintegrate or get absorbed. Also gravity will usually help the fragments move out of the line of sight through the pupil while they are absorbing. Most patients only notice the floater like particles for a few days, and in the vast majority there is no further awareness after a week or so. Does that information provide the information you needed?
Please let me know if you have any further questions about your YAG.
Yes thanks for the help
