Our Services

Comprehensive Eye Care

A comprehensive eye examination is an important proactive step you can take to protect your eyes and vision.  Common vision conditions such as near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism are easily detected and effectively treated with eyeglasses or contact lenses.  Unfortunately, other eye conditions and many serious eye diseases develop slowly over time without obvious warning signs or symptoms.  We specialize in detecting and treating these conditions and diseases as part of your comprehensive eye examination at Morganton Eye.

Cataract Surgery

Morganton Eye offers the most advanced cataract surgery available including the full range of surgical options from traditional mono-focal small incision implant surgery to state-of-the-art LenSx Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery.  We also offer advanced refractive implant surgery with Toric intra-ocular lenses for correction of astigmatism as well as Multi-Focal intra-ocular lenses allowing a fuller range of near, intermediate and distance vision with less dependence on eyeglasses. To provide our patients the very best care, cataract surgery at Morganton Eye is performed in one of our State-Licensed and Nationally Accredited Outpatient Surgery Centers dedicated exclusively to our patients and their unique eye care needs.

John D.

Highly Recommend Morganton Eye!

“I had to have cataract surgery by Dr. Kath. He did a very thorough exam and explained all my options before surgery. On the day of surgery, everyone in the surgery center was very nice and took great care of me. After surgery, I got a great result and now see better than ever. Highly recommend Morganton Eye!”
