Cataract surgery is one of the most frequently performed eye surgery procedures by cataract surgeon Scott Buck, M.D. at Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center. Modern cataract surgery is safe, effective, predictable and quite common and also one of the safest and most successful surgical procedures that you can have. Dr. Scott Buck uses a small incision, “no stitch no needle no patch” technique that is performed on an outpatient basis at the Chandana Surgery Center at Valparaiso Medical Center-which is comfortable, convenient and close to home.
The actual cataract surgical procedure is painless and takes less than 15 minutes, with the entire process usually requiring only two hours of your time from start to finish. To assist you and make your experience pleasant our nurses and staff are present to help us with your actual surgery as well as any other needs you might have.
