The doctors of Atlanta Ophthalmology Associates have collectively performed more than 30,000 cataract surgeries since its inception in 1999, awarding them the Cataract Center of Excellence distinction. Their experience and surgical expertise has generated requests from eye doctors across the country to perform surgery on some of their most difficult cases. They are truly the doctors’ doctors.
Our practice prides itself on providing an individualized and customized approach to cataract evaluation and management. The cataract surgery evaluation begins with an initial consultation including a complete ophthalmic exam, a thorough discussion of the patient’s refractive goals, options for intraocular lenses (IOLs) and the benefits of employing the femtosecond laser for the procedure. Advanced technology IOLs include toric lenses, which can correct astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery, and multifocal lenses, which can potentially eliminate the need for glasses for distance, intermediate and near vision. Using these advanced technology lenses in combination with the femtosecond laser for cataract extraction adds precision and customization for sight recovery.
If surgery is necessary, a preoperative appointment is scheduled with your surgeon approximately one to two weeks prior to the procedure. During the exam, a mutual decision is reached between you and your surgeon to finalize the best choices for cataract surgery. We use two independent systems to obtain IOL measurements. Our double-method technique maximizes the accuracy of the implant power for the best visual outcome.
Your surgery will be performed at Peachtree Dunwoody Outpatient Surgery Center (PDOSC) of Northside, just down the street from the AOA office. AOA’s surgeons have the complete commitment of the surgery center staff each time they operate. The facility is known for its state-of-the-art equipment and their highly skilled, caring doctors and staff. You will experience personalized care during each visit.
