Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM DR. CIESZKO
I have enjoyed caring for you and your families over the years. With a lot of joy, and some sadness, I am writing to let you know of my intention to retire. I have been honored to provide eyecare to a wonderful group of patients. You all have touched my heart and taught me so much throughout the years. I have shared in your lives and watched your children grow into adults, marry, and have children. I have always tried to provide the best care for my patients, and I hope I have given you a fraction of the blessings you all have given me.
I will be turning the ownership of Perimeter Eye Group over to Dr. Anisha Haji owner of Atlanta Eye Group. Dr. Haji is the owner of the Lenscrafters practices at Town Center Mall, Cumberland Mall, and Lenox Mall. I know you will be in good hands; Dr. Haji truly cares about her patients.
I will be here during the transition and will be working with Dr. Haji to help her get to know you and your optometric needs. Rest assured Dr. Khadem, Natasha, Carlos, Jana, Jordan, and Taylor will still be here to provide the level of personalized care that you have come to expect. I hope that you will continue your care with Atlanta Eye Group.
I understand that some of you may want to select a new optometrist outside of the practice. Please be assured that my staff and I will do everything we can to make the transition smooth and stress free. Your medical records are confidential and will remain on file with Atlanta Eye Group. If you choose another optometrist with Atlanta Eye Group, you do not need to take any action concerning your records. If you choose an optometrist outside of Atlanta Eye Group, you will need to sign an authorization form before we can release your medical records. Please note, by law we cannot share your medical information without your written consent. You may sign this form at my office or you may complete the necessary paperwork at your first visit with your new doctor.
It has been a great pleasure meeting and caring for all of you. I sincerely appreciate your friendship and loyalty. I wish you continued good health and all the best in the coming years.
Cynthia A. Cieszko, OD
Dr. Nazanin Khadem is originally from Woodstock, GA. She obtained her undergraduate degree from Kennesaw State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biotechnology. She graduated from Rosenberg School of Optometry in 2014. She completed her clinical externships in ocular disease at Malcolm Randall VA medical center in Gainesville, Florida and LASIK, cataract and cross-linking pre and post-operative care at Dell Laser consultant in Austin, Texas. Her emphasis is on primary care optometry, ocular disease, and contact lens. She finds fitting specialty contact lenses especially rewarding. " It's that reaction from patients when they finally can see clear - it's worth every second of them sitting in my office!" In her free time, Dr. Khadem enjoys running, paddle boarding.
Why did Dr. Khadem decide to become an optometrist? "I was sitting in my optometrist’s office, waiting to be seen. And it was just an 'Aha!' moment for me - that this is a very nice field, and I do like helping people. I’m also very bubbly and social - I like interaction! Also, I have been wearing glasses since I was five or six years old, so that’s one doctor I never minded going to, ever since I was little."
