You’ve had your appointment and are in need of glasses or contacts. Now what? The Eye Consultants of Atlanta experience doesn’t stop there.  

In addition to being a trusted source for best-in-class eye care, Eye Consultants of Atlanta has its own Optical Shops and Contact Lens Department, offering a discerning selection of eyewear for all, no matter the individual need. Convenience and a direct connection to our doctors make these outlets an important aspect of the practice’s commitment to our patients. 

Eye Consultants of Atlanta Optical Shops

The practice has five full-service optical shops, featuring a variety of eyeglass frames and contact lens offerings, at our Cumberland, Marietta, Fayetteville, Advanced Eye, and Newnan locations. Hundreds of different adult frame styles are available, from casually cool to sophisticated and elegant, and popular brands line the shop shelves. Our certified opticians use their extensive training to help guide patients in the right direction. They work closely with each patients’ doctor to ensure the prescription is exactly what the ophthalmologist wants. 

“We provide a personalized level of service,” says optical manager, John Butler. “We aren’t order takers. We are here to assist you and make sure you are getting what you really need.”

The Best for Young Eyes

In addition to our adult-oriented shops, Eye Consultants of Atlanta offers pediatrics-only sales at the Scottish Rite and Lawrenceville locations. Our optical experts help enhance precious eyes with eyewear built for comfort and durability with kid-friendly style. Among the selections available is the ever-popular NanoVista brand, and its line of flexible and indestructible frames. In fact, Eye Consultants of Atlanta remains one of the biggest sellers of NanoVista frames in the country.

The Importance of Sunglasses: Staying Made in the Shade for Summer

With National Sunglasses Day on June 27, the importance of sunglasses steps into the sunlight. Eye Consultants of Atlanta is a fantastic source for prescription sunglasses and carries an array of popular picks, including Ray-Ban and Maui Jim. However, the significance of sunglasses goes way beyond style. Safety is paramount.

Sun exposure is the leading cause of cataracts, retinal issues, and skin cancer around the eyelids. The right sunglasses offer protection, and the correct lenses filter out ultraviolet lights as well as damaging, harmful blue lights and the infrared spectrum. 

“It’s always a good idea to have a dedicated pair of sunglasses, in addition to your regular eyewear,” Butler explains. “It’s similar to having different pairs of shoes for different activities. Our specialists can help put you in the proper pair with the right fit. It’s the best way to protect your eyes, and help avoid serious complications and costs down the road.”

Eye Consultants of Atlanta Contact Lens Department

Our Contact Lens Department, located at the Cumberland location, is a one-stop shop for all of your contact lens needs. With examination rooms and onsite contact lens selections, the location allows our doctors the ability to promptly see patients and fit them in a variety of lenses. 

Patients with severe problems can find relief with specialty contact lenses typically customized for the right size and fit. Contact lens technology continues to evolve, and the Eye Consultants of Atlanta Contact Lens Department fits lenses for conditions such as keratoconus, dry eye, irregular cornea, post retinal detachment, aphakia, and more.

Eye Consultants of Atlanta stays in step with the latest in contact lens technology. This includes scleral lenses, which are larger, rigid gas permeable lenses for those with cornea issues. The shop carries well-respected brands, such as Boston Sight.

In terms of soft lenses, patients have access to a breadth of recognizable options, including Bausch & Lomb, Acuvue, Alcon, and Cooper. A current popular trend for patients age 40 and older are soft multifocal contact lenses, which serve as an alternative to reading glasses or bifocal glasses. 

“We pride ourselves in having a tight-knit and knowledgeable staff,” says Dr. Arlene Gotay, a contact lens specialist who operates the Eye Consultants of Atlanta Contact Lens Department. “Not only do we have a strong relationship with the company’s full roster of doctors, but we serve as a great resource for many other ophthalmologists throughout Georgia and the surrounding states.”

Current patients can reorder contact lenses here.
