Just Curious (regarding yag laser)
I have read that sometimes after cataract surgery, it is possible to develop a "secondary cataract" as it is called, which may happen a short time after surgery, a few years later or perhaps never at all....and that the treatment involves using the yag laser...

Questions: 1) Do all cataract surgery patients eventually need it?
                  2) How do you test for it in the office?  And is that test usually done routinely in most eye surgeon's offices?
Thanks...

1. No with implants used today (2/9/12) about 14-20% will need yag
2. you can see the cloudy membrane and ask the patient if vision is blurry or sensitive to light at night.
