About Us

A Different Kind of Optical Team

Our team’s focus is all about our patient’s overall health.  We continually train in all aspects of eye care to be able to best care for our patients like family.

Whether you’ve just got problems with blurriness, dryness, have diabetes or are worried about your risk of macular degeneration, we can guide you to answers and solutions.

Our opticians are constantly striving to find the most advanced optical products to not only give you precise vision and look great, but also to protect the health of your eyes for years to come.

We have invested in the very best of technologies and training to stay on the cutting edge of eye care.  Not only are we focused on diseases like cataracts, macular degeneration and glaucoma, but we are set up to slow down the aging processes around the eye.  From offering ways to detect and improve our patients antioxidant levels to reducing wrinkles around the eyes non-surgically, we offer full-scope treatments to our patients.  

We have the first and only Annidis imaging system in Georgia.  We offer a non-surgical, wrinkle reduction treatment with the Pelleve‘ system.  And for our patients with severe blepharitis or dry eye, we have the Blephex and Miboflow treatments available.
