About the Atlanta Center for Precision Contact Lenses
No two eyes are the same, yet most contact vendors treat them as if they fit in a handful of pre-defined categories. The Atlanta Center for Precision Contact Lenses at Optique is the premier location for custom contact lens fitting, design, and supply in Atlanta.
Dr. Cohen leverages years of experience to bring custom solutions to patients with extreme astigmatism, eye’s that require non-traditional contact shapes, or for whom off the shelf contacts bring discomfort. Schedule a consultation and see how much clearer your vision can be with a contact solution that is as unique as your eyes.
The Atlanta Center for Precision Contact Lenses is the ONLY center in Atlanta that specializes in speciality contact lenses.
The Exclusive Provider of SightSleep Technology
SightSleep is our proprietary orthokeratology technique. Orthokeratology (ortho-k) is the fitting of specially designed gas permeable contact lenses that you wear overnight. While you are asleep, the lenses gently reshape the front surface of your eye (cornea) so you can see clearly the following day after you remove the lenses when you wake up.
Contact Lenses for the “Hard-to-Fit” Patient
Not everyone is well suited to the most common types of contact lenses. If you have one or more of the following conditions, contact lens wear may be more challenging:
- dry eyes
- giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC)
- post-refractive surgery (such as LASIK)
But “challenging” doesn’t mean impossible. Often, people with these conditions can wear contacts quite successfully. The Center for Precision Contact lenses can take a closer look at your situation and design a treatment that is right for you.
Chronic Dry Eye
Are you using eye drops more and more frequently? Are your eyes constantly dry or itchy? Do you occasionally get blurry vision? You may have Chronic Dry Eye, also known as Dry Eye Disease, a condition in which a person doesn’t produce enough tears to lubricate the eye. If any of these symptoms sound familiar you should schedule a comprehensive eye examination with us immediately to see if EyeLove or Xiidra may be a solution for you. Chronic Dry Eye is a condition that can worsen over time, and if left untreated it can eventually cause damage to the front surface of your eye and impair your vision.
Problem-Solving Contact Lens Fittings Cost More
At the Atlanta Center for Precision Contact Lenses we pride ourselves on offering expert, personalized care and finding the best solution at the best cost. However, fitting contact lenses to correct or treat any of the above conditions will generally take much more time than a regular contact lens fitting. These “hard-to-fit” cases usually require a series of office visits before the final contact lens prescription can be determined. Also, the lenses required for these conditions are usually more costly than regular soft contact lenses. Therefore, fees for these fittings are higher than fees for regular contact lens fittings. Call our office for details.
Find Out if You Can Wear Contact Lenses
If you are interested in wearing contact lenses, call us at the Atlanta Center for Precision Contact Lenses to schedule a consultation. Even if you’ve been told you’re not a good candidate for contacts because you have one of the above conditions or for some other reason, Dr. Cohen may be able to help you wear contact lenses safely and successfully.
Dr. Cohen has been involved in contact lenses and vision research for more than 25 years. He is currently looking for patients who may be eligible to participate in studies directed toward the development and improvement of soft (toric) contact lenses for astigmatism.
To be eligible for participation in this this research study, you must:
- Be between the ages of 18 and 55
- Be a current spectacle wearer or be a current wearer of soft (toric) contact lenses for astigmatism
- Have healthy, non-diseased eyes
- Be able to complete 3 office visits over about 2 weeks
- Be willing to keep all appointments and follow instructions for the study
- Not be currently participating in any other soft contact lens studies
If you fit these criteria, you may be eligible to participate. Qualified participants may be compensated for their time. To see if you qualify and to find out about other requirements for study participation, please call us.
At the Atlanta Center for Precision Contact Lenses, we use WAVE, a CAD (computer aided design) system for customizing contact lenses. Dr. Cohen designs the lenses and therefore has the flexibility to incorporate any minor changes to design or prescription to maximize comfort and vision.
Optometrist Develops Lenses to Reshape Eyes
Cohen’s photographs line the walls at his two Atlanta practices, and he also sells his eye wear brand, Karoo, at his shop at Ponce City Market in Midtown Atlanta. In addition to developing a line of eyeglasses, Cohen has developed his own “orthokeratology” technique…
Keratoconus Specialist in Atlanta
Keratoconus is a medical condition where the central cornea thins and there is a protrusion of the corneal tissue into a “cone”, which distorts vision. Most moderate to severe keratoconus patients cannot wear glasses and require custom fitted contacts.
Dr. Cohen is highly trained in this rare treatment and receives many referrals from corneal specialists all over Atlanta to fit Keratoconus patients.
