Ophthalmology at Emory University Hospital Midtown

Emory University Hospital Midtown ophthalmologists treat patients of all ages for a complete range of eye diseases and visual disorders. We also have tremendous expertise in performing LASIK vision correction surgeries. Last year, more than 1.3 million Americans had LASIK vision correction surgery. It can be used to correct vision problems that normally are corrected by contacts or glasses, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. The doctor uses a special laser to reshape the eye's cornea to aid in its focusing power.

LASIK surgery now is a very common treatment option that continues to increase in popularity. But, it still is considered a surgical procedure. As with any operation, there are risks involved. That is why LASIK correction should only be performed by experienced, certified ophthalmologists, such as those who are part of Emory University Hospital Midtown. Our ophthalmologists offer a combination of comprehensive skills, a dedication to and knowledge of refractive surgery and state-of-the-art equipment to assure each patient receives the best treatment available.

Other common conditions our ophthalmologists treat include but are not limited to:

  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Retinal and corneal disorders
  • Tumors including melanoma
  • Neurologic eye disorders
  • Eye trauma
  • Diseases and injuries affecting the structures surrounding the eye
