Eye Health America Bought 7 Practices Last Year, Grew to 500 Employees

It plans further growth this year.



ATLANTA — Eye Health America, a practice management company, announced that it has acquired seven ophthalmology and optometry practices and ambulatory surgery centers across the Southeast U.S. since it was formed in March 2018.

The company, established by private equity firm LLR Partners, has grown to over 500 employees in Georgia, South Carolina and Florida.

“I am thankful for the trust these companies have placed in us and could not be more excited for the future,” said Rod Roeser, CEO of Eye Health America. “As the eye care industry continues to consolidate, EHA is well-positioned to capitalize on these investment opportunities and help practices navigate the changes to our industry.”

In the coming year, Eye Health America plans to expand into new markets in the Southeast as more eyecare practices turn to private equity for capital, business expertise and relief from administrative burdens, according to a press release from the company. It has also started construction on its new corporate office in Roswell, GA, which is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2019.
