Hard on the heels of our recent upgrade of our OCT-A capability, Southern Eye Specialists has also purchased the new ELLEX YAG LASER – a non-invasive laser utilised to treat patients with posterior capsular opacity (secondary cataract), YAG laser capsulotomy procedures are employed  to make a small hole in the posterior capsule (the membrane behind the lens of your eye) to remove the opacity or haziness that occurs in some patients.  It only takes a few minutes and patients often experience immediate and positive results.
