ask: I have had 2 cryo procedures and now a buckle for a detached retina. I have silicon oil in my eye. Is it safe to have a yag laser to clear debris from my eye lens?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Only your eye doctor can advise you of the safety of further procedures on your eye, based on the health of your eyes now.
