Takle Eye Group seeks to provide the best possible contact lenses and related services to our patients. Our Contact Lens Department offers all contact lens services at competitive prices. We fit all soft and gas permeable lenses, including tinted, toric, multifocal, aphakic, keratoconic, and therapeutic lenses.
We also provide custom lenses to correct glare from deformed pupils or to mask cosmetically unacceptable eye deformities. The close working relationship between ophthalmologists, optometrists, and contact lens technicians ensures the best fit with the proper lenses for your eyes.
Our contact lens staff consists of two providers all at our Griffin office:
Terry Blanchard, LDO is our contact lens technician and has, also, been with our practice for over 30 years. Terry is extremely qualified to take care of any of your contact lens needs. Before going into private practice for himself, he was in charge of the contact lens department at Emory Eye Clinic. He not only did many of their fittings but he was instrumental in teaching resident physicians techniques needed for fitting simple contact lens to the more difficult fits, such as, patients with keratoconus and those who have large amounts of astigmatism that find it difficult to wear soft spherical contact lenses.
Dr. Chado has received extensive clinical training in all areas of optometry including primary care, pediatrics, ocular emergencies, red eyes, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetes, retinal disease, pre/post operative care of surgical patients, LASIK/refractive surgery evaluations, and specialty contact lens fits including medically necessary contact lenses. Dr. Chado speaks both english and spanish and is happy to see Spanish speaking patients as well as patients of all ages.
Dr. Chado is a member of both the American Optometric Association and the Georgia Optometric Association. Dr. Chado is also a provider for InfantSee, a national program which offers free eye exams to children in their first year of life in order to provide early detection of congenital problems which could be developmentally delaying or life threatening.
