Glenda B. Brown, O.D. Joins Thomas Eye Group of Metro Atlanta
Optometrist specializing in pediatric and family eye care will serve patients at Suwanee office
Atlanta, GA - May 30, 2013 - Glenda B. Brown, O.D., has returned to Thomas Eye Group, a leading metro Atlanta eye care provider that offers comprehensive services including LASIK and medical, surgical and cosmetic eye care. She began her affiliation with Thomas Eye Group in 1982 when she practiced with Pediatric Eye Care of Atlanta, a division of Thomas Eye Group and later worked with an Alpharetta eye care practice before returning to Thomas Eye Group.
Dr. Brown graduated from the University of Alabama in Birmingham with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in 1977 and a Doctorate of Optometry in 1981. In addition to her current leadership role with the Georgia Optometric Association, she has served as secretary and treasurer of the organization, and she is a member of the American Optometric Association and the Greater Atlanta Optometric Association.
Dr. Brown frequently lectures on pediatric eye care at various conferences and symposiums throughout the country. In 2007, she was honored to receive the Georgia Optometric Association Bernard Kahn Award for leadership, service and dedication to the profession of optometry in Georgia.
"In my new position I plan to bring my extensive experience in fitting pediatric and adult patients with contact lenses and managing patients with medical eye care needs," Dr. Brown said. "I enjoy helping patients obtain their optimal vision correction and look forward to working with the Thomas Eye Group team."
A native of Alpharetta, Dr. Brown currently resides in Johns Creek and enjoys family time with her husband Dr. Alan Brown, also on staff with Thomas Eye Group, children and two grandsons.

According to Dr. Glenda Brown, an optometrist with Caris Eye Centers in Alpharetta and incoming president of the Georgia Optometric Association, it is a brutal cold and flu season that is weakening immune systems.
"We're all exposed to viruses and bacteria, and if our immunity is down, we can't fight it off," she said.
Since the flu season began, Brown said her practice has seen a 30 percent increase in pinkeye diagnoses - from 222 patients last year to 289 so far this year.
"That's huge," she said.
But be careful about trying to self-diagnose, Brown said.
"There are many other eye problems that mimic pinkeye, and so a lot of eye conditions that patients will refer to as pinkeye are in fact not conjunctivitis," she said. "We get twice as many people who call thinking they have it, when they actually have something else. But the only way to be sure is to see an eye doctor who can evaluate you with a slit lamp bio-microscope, make the proper diagnosis and prescribe a course of treatment."
While conjunctivitis is usually a minor eye infection, Brown said that some forms can be highly contagious and develop into a more serious problem, especially if misdiagnosed and treated inappropriately.
"Many people think it goes away on its own, and often parents don't understand the damage it can do," said Brown.
"One of my patients recently diagnosed with EKC, epidemic keratoconjunctivitis, was home in bed for a whole week," Brown said.
EKC is a highly contagious form of conjunctivitis often found in emergency rooms, nursing homes, schools, camps and child-care centers.
Brown said Georgia's optometrists are working to educate consumers about the many types of conjunctivitis.
"Contact lenses are a medical device ..., 11 Feb 2011 [cached]
"Contact lenses are a medical device and it is smart to purchase them from a medical professional who will fit them to your eye and provide you with instruction on the use and care of the lenses," said Dr. Glenda Brown, president and a member of the Georgia Optometric Association.
