YAG laser

YAG laser

The neodymium: yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) laser is a solid-state laser with a wavelength of 1064 nm that disrupts ocular tissues with a short, high-power pulse. Prior to the development of this laser for ophthalmic use, the only way to manage posterior capsular opacification (PCO) following cataract surgery was with surgery.  The Nd:YAG laser now enables this to be done in an office setting without needing to enter the eye, and is effective and painless.

The Nd:YAG laser is also used to create a drainage hole in the iris (called a ‘peripheral iridotomy’) in cases of acute angle closure and some types of glaucoma.
