In brief: Short lived floaters
The most common effect after yag laser capsulotomy for an "after cataract" is floaters and improved vision.
The floaters should resolve within a few days. If you experience loss of vision, please let your doctor know.

In brief: Minimal
Yag laser is a cold laser used to divide membranes and tissues in the eye.
It may be needed after cataract surgery to open a clouded membrane or in certain cases of glaucoma. If used for the former, floaters in the vision may occur for a time. If for the latter, a small amount of bleeding from the iris is common. Elevated eye pressure is an infrequent occurrence and easily treated. Pretty safe!
