Dr. Eric D Kanter has the following 1 specialty
An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

Been working with Dr Kanter for four years as he "watched" the development of macular puckers in both eyes. Had the left eye repaired 14 months ago resulting in 20/20 vision. May 1 had the right eye operated on. The procedure has gotten even better (no pressure whatsoever), and again, we got great results. Thank you, Doctor Kanter!
I was referred to Dr. Kanter after being diagnosed with a detached retina. Dr. Kanter was extremely professional, told me what needed to be done, and explained the whole process to me. Abby, who is Dr. Kanter's surgical coordinator, booked my surgery and took care of all of my insurance issues so I didn't have to do a thing other than take care of myself. The surgery and recovery went absolutely smoothly and without a hitch. Perfect result! A great doctor and a great office staff.
