Georgia Center for Sight offers a safe and comfortable environment for patients seeking state-of-the-art eye care. Knowing that sight is so precious, Jing Dong, MD, Ph. D. and his staff are careful to give each patient the extra time and attention necessary to not only inform patients, but also to help them feel relaxed and at home.

Our Athens location houses our Ambulatory Surgery Center accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). This means that the surgery center has passed a series of rigorous and nationally recognized standards for the provision of quality health care set by the association.

There are many new advances in technology related to Intraocular Lens Implants (IOL). Conventional intraocular lenses have been routinely implanted in the human eye after cataract surgery for more than 30 years. It provides excellent vision in conjunction with prescription glasses. Without the aid of glasses, conventional IOLs rarely allow patients to see simultaneously far and near objects clearly. Advanced technology IOLs were developed to allow patients to see both far and near targets without glasses. There are several different options to choose from, and after a full evaluation by our staff and Dr. Dong, one of these may be an option for you. We welcome the opportunity to discuss this advanced technology and answer questions you may have.

With an in-house surgery center and state-of-the-art technology available to all patients, Georgia Center for Sight offers patients the very best care in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
