Hartford Hospital’s Eye Surgery Center was first in New England to use innovative laser technology to perform cataract surgery with unprecedented precision – and without a scalpel.

Your eyes are precious. Why take chances with anyone but the most experienced surgeons and the most advanced technology? Our 40-plus, board-certified ophthalmologists perform more cataract surgeries than anyone in New England. We’re proud of our 99 percent patient satisfaction rating.
