Lawrence Katzen, MD, is a board-certified, fellowship-trained ophthalmologist who specializes in cataract surgery in West Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Palm Beach Gardens, South Florida. With more than 20 years’ experience, Dr. Katzen has been recognized as a leading eye surgeon nationally and internationally. He has treated many celebrities, including TV host John Walsh, and his surgical teaching accomplishments have been acknowledged by the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
Dr. Katzen also donates his time and expertise to Project Orbis, a flying eye surgery hospital where vision correction surgery is performed on underprivileged patients in developing countries.
Dr. Katzen specializes in the advanced “no-needle, no-stitch” technique of cataract surgery. With this method, he first numbs the eye with anesthetic eye drops and create a small incision. Then, he carefully extracts the clouded lens and replace it with a premium intraocular lens implant (IOL). The eye surgeons at Katzen Eye Care offer several types of high quality IOLs, including Crystalens, AcrySof ReSTOR and Tecnis Multifocal. The Crystalens IOL is an accommodating lens that moves with the eye’s muscle, helping patients seamlessly change focus from near to distance objects. AcrySof ReSTOR and Tecnis IOLs are multifocal lenses that can improve patients’ abilities to see both near and far.
Dr. Katzen also offers Visian implantable collamer lenses (ICL). This state-of-the-art lens is placed in front of the eye’s natural lens to treat myopia. In addition, he is a highly skilled LASIK surgeon who performs the advanced IntraLase and CustomVue techniques of laser eye surgery.
