Athens eye associates performed thorough eye exams and addressed any concerns my husband and I had. We felt that everyone gave us careful attention. Very professional!

Very through exam. Also all issues were explained so we knew exactly what was going on with our eyes.

5 stars Customer since 2017

My check-in, check-up, doctor meeting, and check-out were smooth and straightforward. Extremely professional and friendly staff. Greatly appreciated and a good way to start the day.

They are thorough and spend as much time with you as needed. You'll never feel like they're trying to rush you out and get to the next patient.

Everyone was very helpful and thorough!

The people there are very nice but unfortunately, they did not deal with my husband's issue about seeing things at a slant in one eye compared to the other. It was suggested he have cataract surgery in his left eye because he had a small cataract and this may help. It didn't and there were complications with the cataract fragments getting in the eye drain which gave him a horrific headache that night. The dr. was great. He had us meet him at the office and he removed the particle and just as he told us, the headache was gone immediately. My husband still had to have a five minute surgery again the next morning because a piece had even gotten behind the iris and would have to be removed so we went back to the surgical center for that early the next morning. Multiple visits and a new lens for his glasses did not correct the problem of his seeing things at a slant. As often as we asked about it, it was never addressed. As a matter of fact, the nurse/tech called to cancel our last appt. with the dr. at the drs. request, and to give it more time. We ended up cancelling all together and made an appt with another ophthalmologist who came very highly recommended. Long story shorter, he had a great staff and by the time my husband had his vision test there, the tech noticed that he really did see thru the one eye at

a slant. After seeing the dr, he referred him to a neurologist-opthalmogist. That was a great experience. This neuro dr. took so much time explaining things, checking him for prisms to see if that would bring his sight to normal, but first he recommended him to go back to the referring dr to have him order a cat scan of the brain to be sure nothing physical was going on there and then for blood work. We did. When all was determined the tests were normal, that it was a sight problem and a prism was the answer, the referring dr. came in and was in there for about 5 minutes, maybe less. He held two prisms up to my husbands eye and determined they wouldn't work on him so may as well save the money. When we explained how the neuro dr. had tested with several prisms until he found the one that would work, this dr. and said that it wouldn't work and no sense spending our money as they are expensive. I asked about what do we do then, because he wasn't drive this way, he said to put a patch over his affected eye and that there's no law against it unless he has a CDL license. Needless to say, we left feeling pretty discouraged. We decided to call and get another appt. with the neuro doctor (this is midtown Emory which is a good distance but well worth it), and went back to see him. We explained what had happened and he took the strip with the different prisms and rechecked my husband's eye. When he found the one he could see through, his tech made a temporary one to be placed on the backside of the lens of his glasses and had him sit for 20 minutes until his eye adjusted to it. It worked great; however, the neuro dr. said he doesn't do prescriptions but they could refer us to one there if we couldn't find one locally who does. We left and my husband was able to drive once again. We have since found someone who does do prisms and he just got his new glasses and the prisms work great. We have to go back to have the bifocal adjusted for reading next week. Sorry this is so long but someone else may have to deal with the frustration and perplexity we have been through. If it helps one person, it was worth it. If you need glasses or normal cataract surgery, these people are fine, but if it's extenuating circumstances, we cannot recommend them.

Everyone is great here. My tech was fantastic - I don't remember her name, but I did mention to Dr. Johnson how great she was.
