Recovery after YAG Laser Capsulotomy is very quick; most people notice the difference within one or 2 days. It is normal to develop floaters after the laser, as the remnants of the membrane are floating in the eye but they usually settle.
The YAG laser procedure is considered very safe. Though there are some risks, serious side effects are very rare. Occasionally the eye pressure can rise or there might be some inflammation in the eye after the procedure, but both of these are easily treated with drops.
Exceedingly rarely, blurred vision due to retinal detachment or macular oedema might occur due to the laser, and they are both treatable.
