As a boy, Moore’s founder Dr. Leonard Ginsburg, witnessed the gradual loss of his grandmother, Belle Moore’s, and his grandfather’s eyesight.
During this time period, Dr. Ginsburg 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 her about her disease. Inspired, Dr. Ginsburg later went to Harvard and became a retina surgeon.
His grandparents’ experience motivated Dr. Ginsburg to create a different type of eye care center, one which was founded and distinguished by caring interactions between patients and highly regarded physicians.
With the help of Crozer Keystone’s Springfield Hospital, Dr. Ginsburg’s vision of providing a new kind of eye care that alleviated patients fears while providing the most advanced treatment from renowned physicians turned into the Moore Eye Institute. Moore is committed to educating patients about their eye conditions while providing the finest care with the latest technology in a warm environment.
As Moore developed, it grew into a comprehensive network of physicians of all specialties with multiple locations to better serve the Delaware Valley. Moore Eye Institute has become an international leader in eye care.
Today Moore is still dedicated to bringing together the finest, most caring physicians who work with patients to maximize their vision, prevent disease, answer questions, and treat the “whole person.”
“I commend the doctors of Moore Eye Institute for their innovative approach to the care of their patients.
I commend them for going beyond what we usually expect of doctors.”
– Robert N.D. Nix, former Pennsylvania Chief Justice of the Supreme Court
