Eye Consultants of Atlanta is proud to announce that three of our very own have been featured in Atlanta Magazine’s newly released list of Top Doctors for 2016!
Atlanta Magazine’s list of the Top Doctors has just been released for 2016, and includes three ophthalmologists from Eye Consultants of Atlanta:

The Top Doctors’ list is compiled by the healthcare research and information company Castle Connolly Medical LTD., whose nomination, screening, and selection process is conducted under the direction of an MD.

Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors.
Eye Consultants of Atlanta was chosen by the American Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery to participate in an exchange program with the European Society of Cataract & Refractive Surgery. This is a highly selective program where both host and participating fellows go through a rigorous application process.
The purpose is to allow young physicians an opportunity to see and experience each other’s clinical practices and organizations.
Dr. Pablo Laso, a cornea fellow from Barcelona, Spain, was selected to spend two weeks in Atlanta. Dr. Barry Lee, one of the cornea specialists at Eye Consultants of Atlanta, and Medical Directors of the Georgia Eye Bank, served as the official host for this program.
“It was an honor for the Society to ask me to sponsor Dr. Pablo Laso and for him to join us at Eye Consultants of Atlanta to share surgical and clinical ideas among the US surgeons and European surgeons. Being one of three sites selected in the US in truly a testament to our work and the international reputation we have built here at ECA,” explained Barry Lee, MD, FACS.
Dr. Laso joined Dr. Lee in clinic, the operating room, and sightseeing around Atlanta, including a night with ECA doctors for a welcome dinner in Buckhead.
It was an intense experience filled with discussions, observations and warm hospitality. Dr. Laso sent his thanks to Dr. Lee and to all the doctors expressing his appreciation, “… thank you for the kindness you and Eye Consultants showed me during my visit to your practice in Atlanta. I learned so many things in your cornea clinic and look forward to using this when I return to Spain. Please send my thanks to all the doctors at ECA and thanks to you for agreeing to host me. It was an honor to work with someone of your expertise!”
In May, Dr. Zane Pollard was honored by Tulane University School of Medicine with a Lifetime Achievement Award. This award is a distinct honor as it is peer nominated and voted. The Dean of the Medical School presented Dr. Pollard his award as classmates and family were in attendance during the weekend of their class reunion.
Dr. Pollard was honored to be recognized but noted that he has “the greatest appreciation for all of the Doctors who are out there seeing patients every day. Those are the unsung heroes.”
A board certified Ophthalmologist, specializing in Pediatric Ophthalmology, Dr. Pollard’s list of credentials is impressive.
