Can you have a posterior capsulotomy done more than once in the same eye?

Yes, a posterior capsulotomy can be done more than once in the same eye, but usually once is enough. However, there may be certain circumstances where the original opening was not large enough and the ophthalmologist wants to enlarge it further.
