(SPONSORED) Specs Appeal opens on Blackmon Drive


Specs Appeal, a new eye doctor’s office on Blackmon Drive in Decatur, is open for business.

It is a truly the most technologically advanced eye doctor’s office in the greater Atlanta area, bringing eye care into the 21st century.

Specs Appeal offers:

Optomap – dilation free exam: An ultrawide view inside the back part of the eye without drops so the patient don’t have to be blurry or light sensitive for 6-24 hrs after exam.

Optovue Angiography: A first of its kind O.C.T. (Optical Coherence Tomography – a non-invasive retina imaging test). It’s an advance diagnostic tool to enhance the thoroughness of a comprehensive eye exam. It uses light waves to take cross-sectional images of the retina.  It is the technology for the future because it can enhance patient care. It can detect problems in the eye prior to any symptoms being present in the patient.

M’Eye Fit measuring device: M’Eye Fit provides precise measurements in fitting of the eye glass frames to the patient. It customizes the fit (taking into account a person’s facial structure in relation to the frames chosen: accounts for the wrap, tilt, pupillary distance) taking measurements to the tenth of a millimeter.  This truly customizes the fit so that the patient can see as sharp as they did in the exam room.

– Digital Topography Exam: Specs Appeal has the Zeiss iProfiler (German engineered) to gather information 5 times as precise and can detect irregularities on the cornea that normally would not be picked until significant changes in vision has occurred.

– Reichert VRx Digital Refraction system: Gone is the traditional phoropter with all the dials (that has virtually remained unchanged since its invention in the early 1900s).

– State-of-the-art In-house Lab: Specs Appeal can cut virtually any prescriptions even very high prescriptions and high wrap (wraparound sunglasses) in house.  Eyeglasses can be created on-site, means faster turn-around time, and since it’s in-house the company can oversee the accuracy and quality of the lenses.

– M’Eye Sign: Specs Appeal can customize your eyeglass lenses so that it has your monogram, sports team logo, name, etc. in the corner of your glasses. For those who want that little extra touch that makes their glasses unique or stand-out.

– Specs Appeal works closely with greater ATL areas top ophthalmologists and surgeons: If you have any conditions that require a major eye surgery, Specs Appeal will get you to the best care.

– Specs Appeal carries many popular brands: Specs Appeal offers Lafont (hand-crafted in Paris since 1923), ic! Berlin (made in Berlin, Germany – revolutionary completely screwless eyewear, without a solder or weld, stainless steel and extremely lightweight), Silhouette eyewear (hand-made in Austria, the original titanium, rim-free, lightweight eyewear), Randolph Engineer (the most worn by celebrities) made in the USA with lifetime warranty, along with fashion brands such as Tom Ford, Gucci, and Prada.
