Sight is one of the most precious gifts we have, and losing vision is one of our greatest fears. At the Moore Eye Institute, we offer more ways to preserve, diagnose, treat and care for people with eye disease. Our unique approach keeps us at the forefront of the ever-evolving spectrum of eye disease treatment.

whose struggles with macular
degeneration inspired him to establish
the Moore Eye Institute.
Moore's approach includes groundbreaking technology - but that is only part of how we became internationally renowned. Our advanced treatment techniques are inspiring. We incorporate these with our team approach to illness and support for the entire person, not just the eyes.
Our renowned institute started with a dream of "vision care provided by physicians whose family members had blinding disorders." This idea grew into a comprehensive network of patients, physicians of all specialties, advanced education, and community service. These elements have become the foundation of the Moore Eye Institute and have enabled us to become international leaders in eye care. We are truly here to make a difference – and we do that more each day
As a boy, founder Dr. Leonard Ginsburg witnessed the gradual loss of his grandmother's eyesight. Her greatest fear was of the day she'd inevitably become blind. He felt frustrated and helpless as doctors provided no aid, no emotional support, and little hope. Determined, Dr. Ginsburg accompanied his grandmother to Boston, where she met with one of the country's best retina specialists at Harvard. He recommended cataract surgery, low vision aids, and visual rehabilitation to maximize her vision, but more importantly, he allayed her fear of blindness and educated us about her disease. Years later, Dr. Ginsburg went to Harvard and became a retina surgeon.
The experiences of his grandparents who were blinded by diabetes inspired Dr. Ginsburg to create a different type of eye hospital. The Moore Eye Institute is distinguished by the caring interactions between patients and members of a highly regarded medical staff. Crozer Keystone's Springfield Hospital also deserves a lot of credit in the Moore Eye story. It also dared to dream that such a facility could be created, and allowed Dr. Ginsburg to name the Institute after his beloved grandmother, Belle Moore. The dream continued, bringing together the finest, most caring physicians who work with patients to maximize their vision, prevent disease, answer questions and treat the whole person.
Welcome to Moore Eye Institute, where the best treatment comes from caring.
