Eye Health America Announces Newest Acquisition of Carolinas Centers for Sight

April 11, 2019

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 11, 2019--Eye Health America (EHA), a leader in eye care practice management, announced today the acquisition of Carolinas Centers for Sight, the company’s second acquisition of 2019. Based in Florence, S.C., Carolinas Centers for Sight is a highly-regarded ophthalmology practice that serves residents in both North and South Carolina. The practice and its physicians have provided medical and surgical ophthalmology services for over 30 years.

“We are excited about this new chapter in our practice’s journey,” said Dr. Samuel E. Seltzer of Carolinas Centers for Sight. “Partnering with Eye Health America will allow us to expand our services in the Pee Dee Region while continuing to provide our patients with high-quality, compassionate eye care.

Carolinas Centers for Sight currently has a team of highly skilled, board-certified ophthalmologists operating out of the main campus in Florence, as well as 4 additional satellite offices in Dillon, Hartsville, Loris, and Sumter, South Carolina. The Florence Surgery and Laser Center (FSLC), located adjacent to their eye care clinic in Florence, offers procedures such as bladeless femto laser cataract surgery, multifocal/astigmatism premium lens implants with Extended Depth of Focus, and glaucoma retinal, and oculoplastic procedures.

“On behalf of everyone at Eye Health America, we are thrilled to welcome Drs. Seltzer, Greene and Vasuki and the Carolinas Centers for Sight team to our growing network of eye care practices in the Southeast,” said Mary Lou Parisi, President of Eye Health America in South Carolina. “Their practice has a proven reputation known widely across the industry, and we look forward to building on their legacy.”

This acquisition marks EHA’s sixth strategic partnership in the state of South Carolina, joining together the most well-reputed and advanced eye care practices and ambulatory surgery centers. Eye Health America recently announced the integration of several of its member practices in Upstate South Carolina (Montgomery & Riddle Eyecare and Donelson Eye Associates) under the brand of Clemson Eye.

Established by LLR Partners in 2018, Eye Health America partners with best-in-class eye care practices and ambulatory surgery centers to help them meet the growing patient need for eye health services, while delivering superior care to patients across the Southeast United States. Led by a management team with extensive industry experience, EHA provides its member practices with capital, business expertise and relief from many of the administrative burdens that take time away from clinical services.
