Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, EyeSouth Partners is a premier network of integrated eye care practices located across the country. Our affiliated ophthalmology practices benefit from superior operational expertise, as well as investments in support staff, ongoing education, and state-of-the-art technology. EyeSouth’s affiliate network consists of 35 practices with over 290 doctors providing medical and surgical eye care services at over 160 locations including 19 surgery centers throughout Georgia, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Tennessee, Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Illinois and North Carolina.

Our History

EyeSouth Partners is a dynamic organization building a best-in-class network of leading practices across the country. We’ve earned our success by partnering with top-quality ophthalmology practices and renowned doctors and ophthalmic surgeons.

Our unique business model provides total clinical autonomy, with growth opportunities through a wide range of business services. An EyeSouth affiliation enables practices to serve more patients with the highest quality ophthalmology care.

We are currently expanding our network through organic growth and partnership with additional high-quality practices and ophthalmologists throughout the United States. See current locations of EyeSouth affiliates.

Our Vision for Quality Eye Care

We began EyeSouth Partners with a clear vision: to be the leading provider of medical and surgical eye care services with an absolute focus on high quality patient care and service.

In pursuit of this vision, we strive to partner with highly respected ophthalmology practices and ophthalmic surgeons throughout the United States.

Supported by a world-class Board of Directors and robust administrative and operations infrastructure, we enable EyeSouth-affiliated ophthalmologist partners to unlock their practice’s full potential.
