Triad Ophthalmic Physicians – Caring for Your Eyes and More

Protecting our eyes is one of the most important things we do. Our eyes are the window to the world, and getting the proper care for them is essential. Triad Ophthalmic Physicians, PLLC, offers not only the best in eye care and treatment, but several other skin-related services as well.

Dr. Chanda A. Griessel of Triad Ophthalmic Physicians, PLLC, is a board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in cataract surgery, glaucoma, eyelid pathology and plastic surgery, and eye care for diabetic patients. Dr. Griessel also specializes in an array of cosmetic procedures to keep you looking your best. Using state-of-the-art procedures, Dr. Griessel offers services to help with body contouring and tattoo removal, as well as smoothing out fine wrinkles with Botox® or Juvederm®.

After earning her undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Houston in Houston, Texas, and graduating magna cum laude, Dr. Griessel went on to complete her medical degree at the University of Iowa College of Medicine. Dr. Griessel then completed residencies in both family practice and ophthalmology, in Iowa and Minnesota, and made her way to North Carolina. “I came to practice in Winston-Salem for several reasons,” said Dr. Griessel. “My mentor at the Mayo Clinic during my residency went to school in NC and told me about NC being a great place to live and raise a family. I grew up in Iowa and wanted to live in a place with the same type of atmosphere where the people share the same values.”

Dr. Griessel is a well-respected surgeon with more than 13 years of surgical experience. She recently served as the Section Chief of Ophthalmology at Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center. With an office conveniently located in the heart of Winston-Salem, her caring staff treats an array of eye-related needs, including annual eye exams.

Other services provided by Dr. Griessel include oculoplastic surgery – blepharoplasty, ptosis repair, brow lifts, ectropion and entropion repair; lesion biopsy and removal; chalazion removal; dry eye; rosacea treatments, including laser correction; eye exams, including yearly diabetic exams; and chronic toxic medication exams.

As Dr. Griessel is board certified in two specialties, she is able to offer insight on the correlations between your eye and body. With brand new laser cosmetic suites for skin rejuvenation, resurfacing, hair removal, blemish removal, tattoo removal and body contouring, Dr. Griessel and her staff offer professional, comprehensive and compassionate care using the latest technology. “We are now offering three types of cosmetic lasers as well,” said Dr. Griessel. “Sculpsure is a body contouring laser that only takes 25 minutes per treatment and is less painful than cool sculpting. Icon laser promotes collagen for revitalization of skin and also scar removal, rosacea treatment and hair removal. We have the newest technology for the laser removal of acne scars, melasma, sun/age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, unwanted hair, and tattoos of all colors, sizes and locations. Our new PicoSure laser can be safely used on all skin types, on all races, anywhere on the body. It far surpasses the previous generations of Q-switch nanosecond lasers with beautiful results and smoother, tighter skin of the face, neck, décolletage, or any area in need of attention. It performs state-of-the-art tattoo removal, usually in half of the treatments required with older generation lasers, resulting in time and cost savings to the patient. Let our experienced laser technicians develop a customized treatment plan for you.”
