Dr. Blatt is the founder of Blatt Eye Center and a Board-Certified Ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.), as well as a Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, and Fellow of the American College of Legal Medicine. He also is a member of other medical and surgical societies, including American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the Cornea Society and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Blatt is also a WellStar-affiliated physician. He has successfully performed many thousands of cataract surgeries and provided eye care for over 36 years. He is dedicated to improving eye health and saving peoples’ vision.

Before medical school, Dr. Blatt graduated with honors in mathematics. He then taught high school science and mathematics while studying for his Master’s Degree in Microbiology.


Dr. Blatt received his Medical Degree from Temple University in Philadelphia and then performed residency training in internal medicine at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, followed by a three-year-ophthalmology residency at Thomas Jefferson University/Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia. Next, he traveled to snowy Rochester for a Cornea Fellowship with James V. Aquavella, M.D. (who was America’s first cornea- trained specialist and is a world-renowed surgeon).

After this, Dr. Blatt was a Clinical Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Rochester Strong Memorial Hospital, where he taught medical students while in private practice. Eventually, the snow became too much for him and his growing family. He moved his practice to sunny Georgia, where he was on the clinical teaching staff of Emory University and the Veteran’s Administration Hospital. Dr. Blatt also graduated with a law degree (Juris Doctor) from Georgia State University College of Law.

His interests primarily center on his family, but he also finds time for art, drawing, animation and martial arts.
