Surgery Center

Augusta Eye MD offers comprehensive diagnostic services and state-of-the-art treatment. If Dr. Marks or Dr. Staats diagnose a problem that requires surgery, they generally perform the procedure at our on-site eye surgery center.

A Patient-Focused Environment

Our highly-skilled caregivers make certain that you are relaxed and comfortable during your short stay with us. You will return home shortly after surgery.

State-of-the-Art Procedures

While surgery to remove a cataract is the procedure most commonly performed there, Augusta Eye MD’s licensed and accredited surgery center is fully equipped for a number of other procedures, such as glaucoma tube surgery, YAG laser capsulotomy, laser trabeculectomy, corneal transplantation, oculoplastic surgery to correct drooping eyelids, and treatment with Botox® Cosmetic.

Chalazion removal and other minor procedures can often be performed conveniently and comfortably in-office.

Advanced Pre- & Post-Operative Suites

Our state-of-the-art operating rooms, pre-op and post-op suites are staffed by specially-trained, experienced ophthalmic nurses who assist Dr. Marks in giving you the best possible results.

Augusta Eye MD recently acquired a new state-of-the-art Nidek GYC-1000 532 nm 1.7 Watt Solid State Laser to add to our laser suite. This laser allows for a non-invasive approach to treatment for disorders affecting the front and back of the eye, such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.

Accredited & Licensed

Augusta Eye Surgery was recently (March, 2015) reaccredited by both the Georgia Department of Health and the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). AAAHC is the nation's leading accrediting organization of outpatient facilities. Being reaccredited means that Augusta Eye Surgery has once again undergone rigorous professional scrutiny and has met the highest national standards for ambulatory surgical care.
