Research Advances

Orange County is the Silicon Valley of eye care not just in the United States, but for the entire world.

For over 45 years, Harvard Eye Associates has brought our patients the most advanced treatments and procedures in both medical and surgical eye care. We continue to conduct research on new lens implants, surgical devices, and medications before they are available to the general medical community.
