The search to find an exceptional cataract surgeon ends in Laguna Hills, CA at our specialty center

Difficulty reading, painting, watching television, or participating in other activities that you enjoy may have brought you to this website. Cataracts may cause vision changes that interfere with your day-to-day life. This age-related “clouding” of the natural lens of the eye can make everything you look at appear foggy, blurry, hazy, or dull – like looking out of a dirty or dusty window. In the search to find a cataract surgeon in the Laguna Hills, CA area, you have come to the right place.

Orange County Eye Institute is led by Dr. George Salib, a Board-certified ophthalmologist. As an ophthalmologist, Dr. Salib has completed advanced training to safely and accurately diagnose and treat all eye diseases. In fact, ophthalmologists are the only practitioners that are medically and surgically trained to identify and treat the complete range of conditions that affect the eyes and surrounding tissues. Furthermore, to obtain certification from the American Board of Ophthalmology, Dr. Salib fulfilled extensive medical training requirements in ophthalmology and successfully completed an intensive evaluation process.

Moreover, Dr. Salib has distinguished himself from other ophthalmologists, including other Board-certified eye surgeons, with his special interest in cataracts and multifocal lens implantation. These “lifestyle” lenses provide exceptional vision after cataract surgery at various distances. Substantive interest in cataracts and the latest, proven treatments to precisely and safely correct them, has resulted in Dr. Salib establishing himself as a:

  • Foremost, national authority in ophthalmology
  • A frequent educator of other ophthalmologists throughout the country
  • An excellent eye surgeon, specializing in advanced techniques acquired while working with the nation’s top surgeons at Tulane University in New Orleans

Cataract treatments are both one of the most common services that Orange County Eye Institute offers, as well as an area of focus for Dr. Salib. So, you know that the safety and health of your eyes are in outstanding hands. Dr. Salib has invested in technologies to offer precision, laser-assisted cataract surgery. This approach to traditional cataract surgery involves using a laser that is programmed by a computer to access the capsule where the lens of your eye sits. This system helps to ensure the incisions made in the cornea are correctly located, sized, and are at the right depth. Such a precision approach is associated with minimal risks and improved outcomes. It is increasingly becoming the surgical method of choice to treat cataracts.

Additionally, such systems are well-tolerated; for instance, with YAG laser capsulotomy, specialized eye drops are all that is necessary to numb the eye. So, the natural lens capsule that holds the clear, artificial lens after cataract surgery, can be treated should the capsule deteriorate. This condition is sometimes referred to as a “secondary cataract.” Vision is once again restored, precisely, and safely.

We also ensure that patients are well-informed of their many options for replacement lenses (or IOLs). Modern implants fit in seamlessly with our patients’ busy and active lifestyles. When Dr. Salib recommends options, you have peace of mind that these lenses are well-suited to you personally and can present you with the greatest range of vision while reducing your dependence on glasses.

See well. Live well.  Call (949) 441-5444 to schedule an appointment at the Orange County Eye Institute in Laguna Hills, CA.
