Conditions & Treatments
Emory Eye Center's Vision and Optical Services offers comprehensive services for all your eye care needs. Your vision is important to us. We want you to see as well as you can see. We go out of our way to provide you with the best in knowledge, experience, products, prices and customer service.
Our optometrists deliver primary eye care including comprehensive, dilated eye exams; contact lens fittings and evaluation; and vision rehabilitation services for visually impaired patients.
Because they are associated with an academic medical institution, they also participate in clinical research-independently and in collaboration with physicians-and perform teaching duties.
Optical ShopOur licensed opticians have a depth of experience in the field. Working with Emory Eye Center's
internationally recognized ophthalmologists and optometrists—or from the prescription you bring to us—our opticians provide the best possible eyewear for your corrective needs.
We're eyewear specialists for pediatrics, low vision, high powers, difficult fits, specialty lens, bi-optics, sportswear, sunglasses, special filters, specialty prescriptions and corrective prism.
We're proud to offer the highest quality products and services at affordable prices. In fact, our price protection guarantee means you will always pay the lowest price for your eyewear. If you find a lower advertised price for the same available brand and model in stock, we will gladly match that price or refund the difference.
Special discounts are available to Emory employees, seniors, Emory-affiliated organizations and those with Emory Eye Center eyewear prescriptions.
Lens technologies available to our customers
Crizal® Anti-Reflective Lenses - virtually eliminate glare and great for night time driving by eliminating headlight glare.
Varilux® Progressive Lenses - (no line multifocal) - are the nearest to natural vision. They can create a sense of constant clarity at all viewing distances. They are ideal for all first time multi-focal lens wearers.
Transition® Lenses - automatically darken in sunlight and lighten indoors, al-lowing the wearer the convenience of one pair of glasses for indoors and out.
Xperio® Polarized Lenses - eliminate all indirect reflection such as from water or snow, allowing greater depth perception and visual acuity. Excellent for many sports including boating and skiing. DriveWear® - the first changeable polarized outdoor lens. It darkens outside as well as behind the windshield. This lens reacts to all different outdoor weather and light conditions.
High Index (Thin Lenses) - are considerably thinner and lighter lenses. They weight much less and are much more comfortable to wear.
U.V. Filter - is highly recommended for its ability to protect the retina from the harmful effects of ultraviolet light and for this reason is also required for all post-operative cataract patients.
Polycarbonate Lenses – are the most impact-resistant lenses. They are made of a thinner, lighter material. The use is mandated for children under the age of 14 because of the superior safety features.
Bifocal Lenses – in the past this has been the most common style of multi-focal lens. It allows the patient to see in the distance and close up with the same pair of glasses.
Computer Lenses - if you’re viewing a computer video display terminal (VDT) you may need variable focus lenses. These help correct vision for the computer screen and the immediate vicinity.
Everyone has different needs when choosing eyeglass frames. Proper fit and a style that suits you are probably the two main objectives. Your face size and shape, hair and eye color, and other factors affect your decision. To make the best selection, you need a good understanding of what constitutes “proper fit.” This will affect how your glasses look, whether or not they are comfortable, and how well you see with them. Our optical professionals are specially trained to assist you with your frame selection.
We carry designer frames including: Coach, Calvin Klein, Versace, Anne Klein, Timberland, Columbia and Flexon.
Children’s Lenses and Frames
The frame styles kids love for fashion and comfort are always on hand in our Optical department. Brands include Flexon, X-Games, WWE and Power Rangers.
We feature Lifestyle Kids IQ lenses made from advanced polycarbonate material that’s 50% lighter than ordinary plastic, yet 10 times stronger and virtually indestructible! Lifestyle Kids IQ anti-glare lenses offer TD2 scratch protection on both sides and 100% protection from harmful ultraviolet rays. Plus, we offer a generous warranty.
