Cataract Surgery
Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed medical procedures, with over 3 million surgeries performed each year. Dr. Lanter is an experienced cataract surgeon, and performs the procedure on an outpatient basis.

Many people, especially over the age of 60, suffer from cataracts without even realizing they are experiencing the symptoms of cataracts. Most patients will complain about the dulling of colors and nighttime driving issues. Cataracts gradually limit a person’s ability to do simple tasks like reading a newspaper.

Preparing for Cataract Surgery

It is important that you discuss your vision expectations with Dr. Lanter, so that you can determine the right lens implant for you. This intraocular lens will be inserted into your eye after your natural lens has been removed.

During the Procedure

Before the surgery your eye must be properly cleaned and dilated. A topical anesthetic is used on the top of the eye before the small incision is made. An ultrasonic devise will be inserted into this incision so that it can pulverize the hard yellow proteins that form the cataract, and remove them from the eye.

A folded intraocular lens will be inserted through the original incision. This lens will stay in place inside your eye, providing you with vision after the procedure. You will not be able to feel or sense this lens in any way. Dr. Lanter will permanently position the lens. Your small incision will self-seal and you will not require any stitches.

After Cataract Surgery

Recovering from cataract surgery is fast and relatively easy! Most patients will notice better vision with their new lens within the first 24 hours. It is important that you follow postoperative instructions and use the two different eye medications (both eye drops) as instructed. It is important that you refrain from strenuous physical activity and from rubbing your eyes during the first few weeks after surgery.
