State of the art office on Hospital Drive featuring the latest cutting edge technology & equipment, and expanded optical department
Founded in 1967, Marietta Eye Clinic is one of the most prominent and technologically advanced eye care practices and surgery centers in the Southeast. During the past 50 years, Marietta Eye Clinic has grown to include nine locations, an exclusive surgery center, over twenty-five doctors, and many subspecialties.
By being a large comprehensive practice, Marietta Eye Clinic can handle even the most difficult procedures. Patients benefit from the expertise of multiple specialists, covering virtually every eye condition, with the convenience of remaining within one practice. The Douglasville office is staffed by a consistent team of physicians comprised of highly skilled Optometrists and Fellowship Trained Board Certified Ophthalmologists specializing in Cataracts, Cornea, LASIK, Dry Eye, Glaucoma, Retina, Uveitis and Pediatric & Primary Eye Care. You are able to see the same familiar faces every time you come, just like a small local practice.
Patients also benefit by having access to Marietta Eye Surgery, Marietta Eye Clinic’s exclusive surgery center consisting of experts in ophthalmic surgery. It features three full size, fully equipped operating rooms where their doctors perform a variety of surgical procedures including Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery, Blade-Free iLASIK, iStent, Oculoplastics, Glaucoma, Retina and Pediatric eye surgery.
For patients with eyes that suffer from dryness, irritation, chronic redness, or a gritty sensation, Marietta Eye Clinic is a Dry Eye Center of Excellence. Many diagnostic and treatment options are available to patients, and Marietta Eye Clinic is committed to adopting the best practices in the management of dry eye disease. The new LipiView Ocular Surface Interferometer is an ophthalmic imaging device which allows a doctor to capture, archive, manipulate and store images of the tear film, and to measure its thickness. This information assists the doctor in guiding the patient to the correct course of treatment.
As experts in management and treatment of macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetic eye care, Marietta Eye Clinic utilizes the most advanced diagnostic equipment, which allows the physicians to view 3D images of a patient’s retina and optic nerve. This provides the doctor the ability to monitor changes to these areas closely, and assists in determining the best treatment.
Marietta Eye Clinic participates with most major medical and vision insurance plans. They also partner with Care Credit to offer financing, including many interest-free options.

Dr. Monica Bratton, M.D. is a Pediatric Ophthalmologist. She attended the University of Tennessee in Knoxville for her undergraduate degree and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis for her medical degree. Dr. Bratton completed her Ophthalmology residency and Pediatric ophthalmology and Adult Strabismus fellowship at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas, TX.
If you ask Dr. Bratton why she choose pediatric ophthalmology and what peaked her interest in strabismus, her answers are simple: “I love children and the idea of getting to play with kids. As a resident, strabismus patients were challenging, and I was intimidated by the specialty. After practicing for several years, I have a new appreciation and respect for strabismus. In adult strabismus cases, there is nothing more heart-warming than aligning a patient’s eyes after years of being labeled as having a ‘lazy eye’ or ‘crossed eye.’ There is a stigma associated with adult strabismus, and many adults don’t realize they have options.”
