News and Events
Ellex Solo SLT laser
Augusta Eye MD recently added the Ellex Solo SLT laser to our arsenal of treatment options for Glaucoma. Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) selectively targets the melanin cells of the trabecular meshwork to enhance outflow and reduce intraocular pressure. The Ellex Solo SLT Laser is the newest SLT technology available and offers patients a highly effective, non-invasive treatment option for Open Angle Glaucoma. SLT is a pain-free, low-risk noninvasive outpatient procedure that can help reduce the need for eye drops and help prevent vision loss from glaucoma.

Look At Our New Technology
The first of its kind in the CSRA
Augusta Eye is the first ophthalmology practice in the Central Savannah River Area to offer the Alcon Centurion Phacoemulsification System. This system enables us to provide cataract patients with the most advanced surgical technology available. It offers unmatched precision, safety, and control of the intraocular environment through all phases of the microsurgical procedure.
Augusta Eye MD is now an accredited Dry Eye Center. We have installed a Tear Lab Osmolarity System to test for dry eye disease. This system is the first objective and quantitative test for diagnosing and managing dry eye patients. Dry eye is a disorder of the tears and ocular surface that can lead to poor tear film, discomfort, and visual changes. Tear film is essential in maintaining ocular surface integrity, protecting against microbial challenges, and preserving visual acuity.
Augusta Eye MD announces the availability of AdenoPlus, a new highly accurate, rapid test that your doctor can use to determine the source of an ocular infection and the correct course of treatment.
Ask Dr. Marks or Dr. Shipp about these technologies!
Congratulations to Dr. Marks, who was recently singled out for the “America’s Top Ophthalmologist” designation for 2013, the tenth year he has received this award since he was first selected in 2002. The Consumer’s Research Council of America based their selection on (among other things) Dr. Marks’ experience, academic training, and professional associations.
The award hasn’t arrived yet, but we expect it to look much like the nine others it will join on Augusta Eye MD’s wall.
Dr. Marks has again been listed in The Best Doctors in America™
Best Doctors conducts a biennial peer review survey of the medical profession that contacts more than 45,000 doctors who were identified in previous research as the highest ranked in their specialties and asks them: “If you or a loved one needed a doctor, to whom would you refer?” Doctors do not pay to be included in the database and they are not paid to participate in the survey. Dr. Marks was the first ophthalmologist so listed in the CSRA and has received this award every year since its inception. Dr. Marks has also been listed in Augusta Magazine’s 2012 “Best Doctors” annual edition and the 2012 America’s Guide to Top Ophthalmologists™, an award given by the Consumers Research Council of America.
Our optical shop has now switched to a new paperless system, paving the way for the entire office to move to electronic health records.
Our Eyewear Gallery has been chosen to carry Pure Vision 2 High Definition contact lenses! Call (706) 922-6000 to learn more.
