Glaucoma specialist Allen Beck is one of the glaucoma specialists at the Emory Eye Center involved in saving sight for many patients. Routinely thought of as an "older" disease, glaucoma also affects children. Here, Dr. Beck examines Lynzee Moore, 4, who was diagnosed with congenital pediatric glaucoma. She underwent a 360-degree trabeculotomy . Happily, Lynzee does not need eye drops or glasses now.
Lynzee's ability to see is directly attributable to the complex surgery she received at the Emory Eye Center. Now when she looks up at the sky and spots an airplane in the distance, she thinks of her father flying off on business trips and misses him, but her parents Steven and Michele Moore count their blessings. Often she sees the plane before they do.
For more than 125 years, individuals from across the globe have sought care from specialists at the Emory Eye Center. Much of this ongoing care would not be possible without the support of our donors who generously fund pioneering research, the latest technology and specialized services that help people of all ages protect or restore their eyesight and improve the quality of their lives.
You can help further our commitment to excellence in patient care, research and teaching. Gifts to the Emory Eye Center will enable us to continue our work with blinding diseases in children, inherited eye disorders, eye conditions due to aging, and much more. Please call us today and find out how you can help.
