About

Bio

Dr. Andrew Shatz is a highly-respected, board-certified ophthalmologist with advanced training in topical, clear-corneal (“no-stitch”) cataract surgery, refractive lens exchange, and phakic intraocular lens implant surgery. With more than 17,000 intraocular procedures performed over the past ten years, he is believed to be the Southeast’s leading implanter of the ReSTOR multifocal and Verisyse Phakic premium intraocular lenses. A national lecturer to both optometrists and ophthalmologists, Dr. Shatz sits on several clinical advisory panels. He often teaches his surgical techniques to other ophthalmologists in the country. His patients include many doctors and ophthalmic surgeons and he is frequently called upon by these colleagues to treat their most difficult cases.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
