Eye Care:
Conditions & Treatments

Cataracts

Emory Eye Center surgeons provide the latest technology for your cataract surgery, the femtosecond laser-assisted LenSx® system. This precision-based system is bladeless, computer-controlled and performed to exacting, individualized specifications—for you. The LensSx allows complete customization for each patient, providing the best opportunity to get the vision you want after cataract surgery.

Comprehensive Ophthalmology

Comprehensive ophthalmology services include screenings for eye disease and disorders, visual acuity exams, prescriptions for eyeglasses or contact lenses, and surgical evaluations.

Comprehensive ophthalmologists specialize in medical and surgical first-line treatments for disorders such as macular degeneration, tumors of the eye, uveitis, cataracts, dry eye, conjunctivitis, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, inherited retinal diseases and other retinal problems. When a medical condition indicates, they will refer the patient to the care of an appropriate ophthalmology specialist.

Cornea, External Disease and Refractive Surgery

Cornea specialists at the Emory Eye Center utilize the latest techniques and advances in the field to treat simple and advanced problems caused by disease, genetic predisposition, injury or aging to the structures in the front regions of the eye. These include cataracts (when the natural lens inside the eye becomes cloudy and blurs vision), keratoconus, corneal abrasions, other conditions that affect the outer layers of the eye, and refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Cosmetic Oculoplastic Services

Emory Eye Center's highly-skilled oculoplastic physicians, also known as eye plastic or oculo-facial surgeons, perform both plastic (reconstructive) and cosmetic facial surgery on the structures and area around the eyes to correct abnormalities and aesthetically enhance the appearance of patients. They are also specialists in nonsurgical, cosmetic facial services that counteract the normal effects of aging to create a natural, healthier, more youthful appearance.

Glaucoma

Emory glaucoma specialists are nationally known for developing innovative instruments, surgical techniques and laser procedures to treat glaucoma in both adults and children. They are also engaged in researching the latest medications available on the market to halt the progression of this blinding disease.

LASIK and Refractive Surgery

Laser in Situ Keratomileusis ("LASIK") is a laser procedure that can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. LASIK involves creating a protective flap from the outside layer of the cornea and sculpting the middle layer to correct refractive error and improve vision. The outside flap is then repositioned over the sculpted area, much as a band-aid. The FDA's ophthalmic devices advisory panel has recommended FDA approval for the LASIK procedure using a surgical system developed by Emory cornea surgeons.

Low Vision

Emory Eye Center's Ned S. Witkin Vision Rehabilitation Service helps people of any age with reduced vision that neither surgery, medical treatment nor the best standard optical remedies can correct. It offers a wide variety of services and devices to help individuals with reduced vision perform their daily activities including driving, reading and recognizing faces. Numerous electronic devices are on the market today to help those with low vision. Extensive training with the devices is provided by an occupational therapist.

Neuro-ophthalmology

The Emory Eye Center’s Low Vision Clinic offers special help for individuals with reduced vision that neither surgery, medical treatment nor the best standard optical remedies can correct.
