Dr. Brent R Hayek has the following 1 specialty

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

I had a brow lift to improve vision about 5 days ago. So far so good - and to boot I look 20 years younger.

Ptosis Surgery

As a patient who had just recovered from Steven Johnsons Syndrome (TENS) I was very conscious of my drooping eyelid (ptosis) . Dr Brent Hayek at the Emory Eye Hospital examined me and scheduled me for surgery a month later. At the time of the surgery he took the time to explain the procedure to me and put me at ease. During the course of the following week, I experienced no pain or any sign of infection, and was pleasantly surprised to see how successful and painless the procedure was. I owe a debt of gratitude to Dr Brent Hayek for restoring my self confidence and my eyelid to normal. More importantly for being his caring attitude, attention to detail, a skilful and competent surgeon

Basal Cell Carcinoma of Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Hayek is a caring, very capable doctor who puts his patients at ease. He called me after surgery to check on how I was getting along. My surgery involved the removal of a basal cell carcinoma from my eyelid. His followup was great, and I was most impressed by his caring attitude. For most appointments, I was seen on time. Only on one occasion did I have to wait 30+ minutes and that was due to his having been in surgery longer than expected.
