A cataract is a cloudy area in the normally clear lens in the front of the eye. There is no pain associated with the condition, but there are other symptoms and risk factors.
Comprehensive Eye Exam
A comprehensive eye examination will evaluate not only how well you see, but also identify potential eye diseases. Some eye diseases, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, can result in serious vision loss if not detected and treated early. Often patients with these diseases do not experience any visual symptoms before vision loss occurs. The examination will take between 1-1.5 hours depending on which tests need to be performed.
Our goal is to not only help you see well with your contact lenses but to also make sure you are wearing the healthiest lenses for your eyes. We offer a variety of contact lenses depending on your visual needs. We fit both soft lenses and rigid gas permeable lenses, including those which are difficult to fit.
The cornea is the clear covering of the front of the eye which covers the iris, pupil and anterior chamber. The cornea bends or refracts light rays as they enter the eye. For clear vision to occur, the cornea must have the correct shape and clarity to focus incoming light rays precisely on the retina at the back of the eye. When the cornea becomes cloudy or misshapen from injury, infection or disease, transplantation may be recommended to replace it.
A DSAEK procedure is a partial-thickness corneal transplant that replaces only the endothelial layer. A thin piece of donor tissue containing only the endothelial cell layer is inserted onto the back surface of the patient's cornea. This new technique appears to be a significant improvement over a standard full thickness corneal transplant. The surgery itself takes less time with an experienced surgeon, involves a smaller surgical incision, requires far fewer stitches, heals faster and more reliably, and the vision returns faster. There are several advantages to the DSAEK operation compared to standard corneal transplant surgery.
Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the U.S. It occurs when the pressure inside the eye rises, damaging the optic nerve and causing vision loss. The condition often develops over many years without causing pain or other noticeable symptoms so you may not experience vision loss until the disease has progressed.
LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) is a safe, reliable and painless way to improve vision and reduce or eliminate the need to wear glasses or contact lenses. LASIK changes the way light is bent, or refracted, as it passes through the cornea so that it focuses properly on the retina and objects can be seen clearly.
At Atlanta Ophthalmology Associates, our goal is to provide the best possible vision care with the highest quality frames, lenses and design.
