The medical community in Braselton at the Hall-Gwinnett county line continues to blossom.

The latest addition is Georgia Eye Associates, opening a practice in the Creekside Village complex at 1235 Friendship Road, Building 300, Suite 120.

Partner Dr. Kris Gillian said of the new location, “Through innovation and technology, we’re not only providing patients with the very best eye care, we’re also making it more convenient for residents of North Georgia to receive that care.”

Georgia Eye Associates has other locations in Lawrenceville, Buckhead and Tucker.

The new location is just west of Old Winder Highway/Ga. 211 and near Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton. Both the eye practice and the hospital are off Friendship Road/Ga. 347.

The practice will offer routine eye exams, treatment of eye injuries, diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, LASIK vision correction, laser-based cataract surgery with multifocal implants, corneal replacement and enhancement surgery, and eyelid lift surgery, according to a press release.

The location also features the Optical Shoppe, where patients can shop for glasses.

Overall, “from the sleek design to the comfortable furnishings, we’ve intentionally designed a space that our patients will enjoy visiting,” Gillian said.

Other medical practices are springing up in the area, including Highpoint Medical Center, across the road at 1270 Friendship Road. Earlier this fall, Gainesville-based Longstreet Clinic moved to the complex, which is also off Thompson Mill Road.

Highpoint is a multiphase project being developed by The Norton Agency. The 22-acre campus will include 250,000 square feet of office space, walking trails, water features and dining areas.

The area also is developing commercially, with several restaurants planned off Ga. 211.
