Serving eye care patients throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area for more than 40 years, Robert Goetzinger, MD, launched Goetzinger Eye Institute as a way to provide patients with the most comprehensive eye care in a welcoming, comfortable environment that has the latest technology and diagnostic equipment.

With two convenient locations in Riverdale and Stockbridge, Georgia, Goetzinger Eye Institute offers a broad range of services for the whole family. From contact lenses and glaucoma treatment to in-office laser surgery and a full-service optical shop complete with high-end brands like Ray-Ban®, Oakley®, Vera Wang®, and Versace®, Dr. Goetzinger and his team are ready to meet any patient’s needs.

The Goetzinger Eye Institute team is constantly looking for new opportunities to improve the lives of their dedicated patients, which is why they have recently invested in a brand-new AdaptDx® machine by MacuLogix®. The revolutionary machine detects and monitors early age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The team also has a new Zeiss Cirrus optical coherence tomography (OCT) machine that maps out the back of a patient’s eyes.

Because the practice offers a comprehensive list of services, treatments, and advanced procedures, its team of experts is able to take on patients of all ages, from babies and small children to adults and seniors, making Goetzinger Eye Institute the place for everybody.
