Just had yag laser surgery and my vision is more cloudy?

Laser surgery. Yag capsulotomy uses a laser to clear cloudy vision after cataract surgery. The laser essentially destroys the central portion of the cloudy capsule that causes the hazy vision. It is typical for vision to remain cloudy for up to 1-2 days after the procedure. If it has been longer, or the visionis getting worse, go back to the eye doctor immediately.
