Lehigh Valley's #1 Choice for Cataract Treatment

Better Vision. Better Quality of Life.

Cataract specialists have a deep understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the eye, particularly related to cataracts and other conditions affecting the lens. They are skilled in evaluating patients with cataracts through comprehensive eye examinations and advanced diagnostic tools to determine the severity of the cataract and any associated vision problems.

Blurred or cloudy vision caused by cataracts can limit an individual’s activities, strain social interactions, and pose safety risks. Dr. David DeRose, our cataract specialist, is proud to bring a better quality of life to patients in Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, and surrounding areas. If you’ve been referred to Lehigh Eye Specialists for treatment of cataracts, Dr. DeRose and his team will evaluate and determine the best treatment plan for your vision goals. He offers a wide range of treatment choices, including the Light-Adjustable Lens (LAL). We are the only practice in the region to offer this type of lens.
