Why do people get blurred vision and halos after an iridotomy?

Iridotomy. An Iridotomy is performed in patients who have a narrow angle (narrow internal eye drain area: see [email protected] for more info). The laser makes a microscopic hole in the peripheral iris to help fluid get into drain easier. Creating the hole can make vision blurry from inflammation in eye. Halos can happen due to hole depending on location. What clock hour did they make the hole & when?
