2017 Solar Eclipse
  by admin on August 14th, 2017

The solar eclipse is one week away! Athens Eye Clinic wants everyone to make sure we protect our eyes from potentially serious damage from viewing the sun. One of the types of damage that can occur is called Solar Retinopathy- permanent damage to the retina, the very sensitive inner lining of the eye. Please visit the American Optometric Association's website (https://www.aoa.org/Documents/public/AAS-Solar-Eclipse-Safety-v170210.pdf) for viewing tips. Please be aware that there are several unsafe "solar viewers" being sold that do not meet federal safety standards. Protect your eyes; we only get one pair!

Summer Eye Exams
  by admin on June 19th, 2017

When making plans for the summer, be sure to include your annual eye exam.

School age children should have an eye exam every year. This is important even if they are not complaining of eye related issues. Many times children don’t complain about eye or vision issues, and conditions go undetected. Summer is the perfect time for children to ensure they go back to school in the fall with great vision.

Adults should also add an eye exam to their summer to-do list. Even if you’ve never worn glasses or contact lenses, a comprehensive eye health check is necessary to detect early signs of glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, or other eye diseases which go unnoticed.

Our schedule is filling up fast. Call our office at (256) 232-8240, or use the “Make an Appointment” link at the top of our website to schedule your exam.

Keratoconus and Scleral Contact Lenses
  by admin on May 8th, 2017

Keratoconus is a condition where the cornea, the clear, round, front surface of the eye, thins, stretches and becomes irregular and cone shaped. This condition often causes people to be unable to see well through glasses or traditional contact lenses. In these cases a special kind of contact lens may be necessary to fully correct vision. A scleral contact lens is a rigid contact lens that is larger than traditional contacts. The larger size allows the lens to completely cover the cornea and correct the irregular surface. These lenses take special skills and more time to properly fit, but can be life-changing to someone dealing with keratoconus, as well as other corneal irregularities such as people who have had corneal transplants.

Athens Eye Clinic provides these advanced contact lens services. If you have Keratoconus or another eye condition and have been told you need specialized contact lenses make an appointment to learn if this lens could work for you.
