As part of our COVID-19 protocol, we are now requiring our patients to undergo an Optomap® Retinal exam in lieu of dilation to evaluate the inside lining of the eye. This procedure is being performed to lessen the time spent in our office. There is an additional fee of $35 for this test which is often not covered by insurance plans, as it is considered a health screening. However, it can be billed to a medical insurance plan if there is a retinal disease diagnosis. Please speak to our staff for more information.

Ptosis Treatment – Upneeq Eyedrops

dry eye ThumbnailAcquired ptosis (low-lying lids) is a common medical condition that:

-Can develop later in life

-Affects adults of all ages, but occurs more often with increased age

-Usually occurs when the muscles in the eyelid stretch and weaken, causing the upper eyelid to droop

-May be caused by other issues, such as cataract surgery, contact lens wear, or an underlying medical condition. It could also be a sign of a more serious medical condition.

We offer our patients in Atlanta and the surrounding areas the Upneeq treatment. Upneeq is the only FDA-approved prescription eyedrop for acquired ptosis (low-lying lids) that lifts your upper eyelids to open your eyes.

Most patients in clinical trials of Upneeq had a lift in their eyelids in as little as 2 hours.

84% of patients had some form of improvement.74% of patients had more than a 50% improvement.In one study, some patients saw a lift in their eyelids as fast as 5 minutes after the first dose.

40.8% of patients had at least a 50% improvement on Day 14 (2 hours after applying Upneeq).
