Restore your vision, quality of life with a skilled doctor for cataract surgery in Laguna Hills, CA

Do you no longer drive at night, because street signs look distorted? Has your independence suffered, as you must arrange transportation rather than taking off on your own? Are puzzles, reading, and other once-loved activities frustrating because you can no longer see clearly? You may be among the almost 25 million Americans with cataracts. A natural process of aging, cataracts refer to a clouding of the lens of the eye, akin to looking through a dirty window. Cataracts are common. But you do not have to live with a poor quality of life due to them. When searching for a doctor for cataract surgery in Laguna Hills, CA, you are fortunate to have the Orange County Eye Institute nearby.

Dr. George Salib distinguishes himself from the thousands of other ophthalmologists you have to choose from in the Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Anaheim metro in several different ways:

  • As specialists in the prevention, detection, and treatment of conditions that affect the eyes and vision, ophthalmologists’ expertise and experience can vary considerably. Over the decades, Dr. Salib has established himself as a nationally recognized authority in areas of particular interest to those patients with cataracts. For instance, he is sought out by his peers and ophthalmological organizations as a lecturer and educator in highly specialized disciplines and interests, such as cataract surgery and multifocal lens implantation.
  • Dr. Salib and the team at Orange County Eye Institute have invested in advanced technologies, equipment, and products that are proven to be safe and effective. These investments allow for precision treatment, which generally minimizes the risks of complications and side effects, and enhances patient comfort, optimal outcomes, and the overall patient experience. As it relates to the treatment of cataracts, many of OCEI’s patients have benefited from laser cataract surgery. As an exacting, less invasive, and gentler alternative to conventional cataract surgery that generates heat (through ultrasonic energy), involves the surgical removal of the cataract and potentially requires sutures to close the treatment area.

Dr. Salib treats every patient as a unique individual. He will not automatically push patients toward surgical procedures, laser-assisted or otherwise. You may see a dramatic improvement in your vision with adjustments to corrective eyewear, for instance. He won’t know for sure what is best for you and your situation until after an appointment is scheduled at the Orange County Eye Institute in Laguna Hills, CA. Call (949) 441-5444 to book your consultation now.
