I’m an 85 year man with a lifetime of astigmatism, weak eyes and glasses since the age of 14. In the past two months Dr... Stephen Hamilton and the folks from the Piedmont Eye Surgery Center have removed the cataracts, worked out the astigmatism and have me reading 20/20 in one eye and 20/25 in the other. Truly a Blessing!read more

My son recommended Dr. Stephen Hamilton and I am very thankful he did! I have been a patient of Dr. Hamilton’s for... several years and have been extremely pleased with him as a doctor as well as the staff that works alongside him. I came to Dr. Hamilton with mild glaucoma, astigmatism in both eyes, extreme dry eye and the beginning of cataracts. Dr. Hamilton is extremely knowledgeable and has always taken the time to explain every situation, his recommendations and reasoning for them. Recently, Dr. Hamilton performed cataract surgery on both eyes with Symfony Toric lens replacement and inserted iStents in both eyes to treat the mild glaucoma and eliminate the use of eye drops. I now have 20/16 vision and my eyesight is amazing. I am so pleased with the results from the surgery and confidently recommend Dr. Hamilton as a well-trained, highly skilled eye doctor and surgeon.read more

The whole experience with Dr. Hamilton was a great pleasure. Thank you so much Dr. Hamilton!!read more
Dr. Hamilton is a great doctor and very skilled surgeon. He reconstructed my right eye with a CustomFlex Artificial... Iris and a new inter ocular lens. The result has been life changing. For the first time in 35 years, I am pain free from photosensitiviy in that eye, my vision has been restored and cosmetically I have a perfectly normal looking iris that matches my other eye. The outcome has been much better than I imaged or dared hope for. The care I received from Dr. Hamilton and staff was just amazing. I highly recommend Dr. Hamilton to anyone in need of eye surgery.read more
