Fog from Cataract Surgery

I am young [almost 21]. I suffer from Retinitis Pigmentosa, so I had cataracts at an early age.  Recently, I was told by my retinial specialist that I have a fog that needs cleared up.  It came from having cataract surgery.  It said I will have a laser surgery to correct it.  He was brief and only said it was simple.  That's also what I was told about my cataract surgery.  I understand they are easy operations, but I would like more of an explanation of what will exactly be done.  Is there pain?  Will I be medicated?  Will I wear and eye patch?  During my cataract surgery I did feel some slight pinching and my eyes were a little sensitive the next few days.  Will these procedure be similiar?  I am just curious.  Thanks so much.

I believe you have posterior capsular haze.  It is easily treated with a laser.

I forgot to mention that there is no pain, no patch and you use drops after surgery for a few days.  Vision recovers rapidly.
