Had a great experience with Dr. Byron Long and the staff at Marietta Eye Clinic. I recently required an eye procedure that needed to be performed by an oculoplastic specialist and after much research and consideration chose Dr. Long as my surgeon. At my pre-op appointment he performed a thorough exam and then talked with me for an extended period to answer all of my questions and make sure I understood everything that was being discussed and recommended. Dr. Long’s staff then took additional time to review my pre-op and post-op instructions and gave me a clear overview of how the surgery center process would work on the day of my procedure. I won’t go into a lot of details about my surgical experience beyond saying that I am absolutely delighted with the results. I had been warned beforehand to expect bruising and swelling and even a moderate amount of pain after the procedure was completed. Instead, I experienced minimal bruising and swelling and only required Tylenol for a couple of days to handle some mild discomfort. I will say that I followed Dr. Long’s post-op instructions to the letter, with the key being regularly placing ice packs on my eyes the first few days. I also believe that Dr. Long’s precise and gentle surgical techniques played a large role in keeping post-op issues to a minimum. In addition, both Dr. Long and his nursing staff called me after my procedure to make sure that I was healing well and to answer any questions that might have arisen. At my post-op follow-up appointment, Dr. Long removed my sutures and again, took as much time as needed to discuss my procedure and outline what I needed to do over the next few days and weeks to ensure that I had an optimal outcome. I was very impressed with both Dr. Long’s skill as a surgeon and his warm bedside manner and would highly recommend him to anyone in the Atlanta area in need of an oculoplastic surgeon.

I am very pleased with the service and improvement in my Vision from Marietta Eye Clinic. I can read, see and drive again with confidence. My story. Two years ago in the bright California desert sun, I had headaches and the signal from my right eye so interfered with the left that it was just easier to close my eyes. Soon after returning to Georgia, I set an appointment with Dr. Thurswell at Marietta Eye Clinic. I was referred to Dr. Cohen. I suffered from cataracts and Fuch's [be careful how you pronounce Fuch's] dystrophy in both eyes. I started eye drops and soon had right eye surgery to correct both conditions and wore a contact lens [thank you Dr. Russel] in the right eye. My vision went from two lines below the big E to better than20/60. An incredible improvement. The left eye had cataract surgery after the right eye healed. Within a few days my left eye I vision went from the big E to 20/40, without glasses or contacts. I can read from inches away to far, far down the highway. With glasses the left eye can achieve 20/20. After wearing glasses for 26 years I am delighted to be done with them. No more fogging or rain drips Sight goes away slowly and the change from day to day is minimal, then one day you get out of bed and can't see much of anything. But it can be restored in my situation almost overnight. I typically don't comment on things but vision is so important. How could I not share?
I received LASIK at Marietta Eye Clinic 2 months ago. I have to say I am very pleased with my results. The staff is very friendly and my experience was very pleasant. I was extremely satisfied with the level of attention I received from the actual surgeon. Not only did I see him at my first visit but every time after. He was always making sure I was satisfied with my outcome and showed excitement with my results. I thought it was really neat seeing him on my 1 day post op and having him “congratulate” me on my new set of eyes. I never thought I would have such crisp clear vision like a do now. I will ONLY return to Marietta Eye Clinic for my eyes. It’s hard to find Doctors that you can really trust… not only with yourself but with your eyes. I HAVE FOUND THEM! Highly recommend Marietta Eye Clinic for not only LASIK but every kind of eye care need.
