Brad A. Altman, O.D., launched Aprima in 2014 to provide consulting in eye health. Dr. Altman brings more than two decades of experience with the visual system and diseases of the eye. He offers treatment for glaucoma, dry eyes and fitting specialty contact lenses for keratoconus or irregular corneas. If a patient has been to a previous practice and been told they can’t wear contact lenses, that their prescription is too difficult or their eyes are too dry or they have astigmatism, those are challenges we try to help solve.

Important Facts

It is estimated that 2.2 million Americans have glaucoma but only HALF of these people know they have it. There are no symptoms for glaucoma until vision loss has become permanent, so having yearly dilated eye exams are very important.

Diabetes is the leading cause in blindness. 40-45 percent of all Americans diagnosed with diabetes have some stage of diabetic retinopathy. Having a dilated eye exam allows Dr. Altman to make sure your eyes are healthy and free of any complications.

Dr. Altman is certified in fitting specialty lenses like Onefit, a scleral lens that doesn't touch the cornea. Dr. Altman was the first optometrist in the State of Tennessee to be trained in prescribing and fitting these lenses, which have proven to be comfortable for many who can't wear contacts.

Diabetic retinopathy is the result of damage caused by diabetes to the small blood vessels located in the retina. Blood vessels damaged from diabetic retinopathy can cause vision loss. Diabetic retinopathy can be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye examination.
