Opacification of Posterior Capsule
Cataract surgery removes the cloudy lens from its cellophane-like lining called the lens capsule. This natural lens is replaced with an artificial lens into this membrane, which is supposed to be crystal clear. With time, this membrane may become cloudy or wrinkled and caused blurred vision, as if the patient had a cataract all over again.
This clouding of the capsule can be treated with a simple laser procedure called posterior capsulotomy, which makes an opening in the posterior capsule to restore the patient's normal vision.
