The principal benefit is restoration of vision which was reduced due to the PCO. Risks of YAG laser are very small in experienced hands. Very occasionally, there can be inflammation or rises in eye pressure following laser, which is treatable with a short course of eye drops. There is a very small risk of minor damage to the lens implant. Fortunately, this seldom affects vision. There is also a very small risk (<1%) of developing a retinal detachment which would require surgery. There is also a small risk (<2%) of developing fluid in the central part of your retina (macular oedema) which would result in reduced vision. This is generally treatable with a course of eye drops. In all instances, Mr Balaggan is ideally placed to treat any of these rare complications.
