Since the Caplan Eye Clinic was founded in 1938 by the late Dr. Harry B. Caplan, we have established a tradition of providing high quality eye care in a caring atmosphere. We are a “total” eye center offering adult and pediatric eye care. Our staff of Ophthalmologists and Optometrists diagnose and treat a variety of eye conditions and disorders, including Cataracts, Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy, and diseases of the Cornea, Retina and Eyelids. We also fit contact lenses and perform medical eye examinations. Our specialties include: Custom Laser Vision Correction, and Cataract Surgery with Lifestyle Lens Implants.
In 2013, we were presented with proclamations by the Jefferson Parish Council and the St. Tammany Parish Council, in honor of our 75th anniversary and in recognition of our status as the oldest eye care practice in the State of Louisiana.

“Prior to having cataract surgery, I could no longer see the detail required to sew my Mardi Gras Indian suits. After Dr. Caplan did my cataract procedure, I can now see close up detail and more brilliant color which allowed me to get back to creating my costumes.”

Dr. Jarret Brashear and wife Meghan
Meghan Brashear: “I knew that I was getting married soon and I wanted to have LASIK so I could walk down the aisle without worrying about glasses or contact lenses. As a surgical resident, Jarret wanted to be able to do surgery without the hassle of contact lenses or glasses. He also loves the outdoors; so he can now also enjoy fishing and hunting without the bother of dealing with contact lenses.”

“When it came time for me to look for cataract care, I called Caplan Eye Clinic. With their 70 plus years of outstanding results, I knew the Caplan Experience would be a winner for me. Now I have 20/20 vision!”
