8 More Texas Eyecare Locations Acquired

The deal follows the acquisition of 11 offices in late July.




DALLAS, TX – Acuity Eyecare Group, an owner and operator of North American eyecare groups and optometry practices, announced that it has acquired eight practices in Houston, TX, and the surrounding areas.

They are:

  • Memorial Eye Center: A three location optical group, Memorial Eye Center has served the West Houston community for more than 28 years, becoming one of Houston’s largest independent optometric practices.
  • Additional Locations: Acuity Eyecare Group has acquired an additional five Houston-area practices in the communities of Cinco Ranch, Rayford, Rice Village, Riley Fuzzel and Sugar Land. The independently-owned locations offer a range of treatment including the co-management of LASIK laser surgery, pediatric vision care, cataract and glaucoma management as well as ortho-keratology and specialty contact lenses. Each location will transition to the Memorial Eye Center brand.

These eight practices join AEG’s growing network of Texas eye care groups, including EyeTx and Hill Country Vision Center, which were announced at the end of July.

“We are very excited to have partnered with Acuity Eyecare Group. My colleagues and I have been very impressed with the professionalism of their entire team, their efficient approach to timely reviewing and closing this transaction, and their overall transparent approach and how they communicate,” said Thomas Arnold, OD, who has owned a Sugar Land, TX practice for more than 27 years. “Most importantly, we share the same view of the profession, how best to support doctors, and how best to enhance the performance at a practice level.”

Eric Anderson, CEO of Acuity Eyecare Group, said, “We are very honored that Dr. Tom Arnold, Memorial Eye Center, and several other prominent practices led by talented doctors would choose to partner with Acuity. We are excited to have them join the growing AEG family. And we are very enthusiastic about our progress in building significant presence in Texas.”

Joe Terzo, chief development officer, said, “AEG’s philosophy is to maintain the DNA and culture of each practice we acquire while we enable them to leverage our resources to elevate their practice. We’re committed to giving each of these practices the resources they need to further expand and grow.”
