About Orange County Eye Institute
Founded by Dr. Salib, Orange County Eye Institute provides outstanding ophthalmologic care for individuals of all ages. An eye doctor is not an optometrist, the professional who performs eye examinations and assists with vision correction with glasses or contact lenses. As a board-certified eye doctor, Dr. Salib evaluates and promotes eye health, diagnosing eye diseases, and performing surgeries as needed to restore clearer vision and improved comfort. Patients of Orange County Eye Institute receive individual attention when they visit our Laguna Hills practice. We respect and work with the needs and expectations of each individual patient, focusing on the concerns at hand and answering questions related to eye health and proposed treatment.
