Customer Question

I had YAG surgery for PCO in January. I told my surgeon that my night vision (starburst/light scatter) was worst after surgery. His comment was "I don't know what to tell you." My understanding is a second YAG is necessary in cases where the opening in the capsule is smaller than the pupil at night dialation. My surgeon did say that my eyes have large pupils. Please advise.

You are correct. If the pupil dilates at night to a greater diameter than the opening made with a YAG laser then you still may certainly have persistent symptoms. For that reason, I tend to make the openings on the larger side. I think it's definitely worth discussing a repeat procedure to provide a larger opening. If the surgeon is unwilling to have that conversation, then it's likely worth getting a second opinion. Does this make sense?
