Eye Health America (EHA), a leader in eye care practice management, announced last week its acquisition of Montgomery & Riddle Eyecare and The Surgery & Laser Center at Professional Park, a prominent eye care provider.

The group’s four South Carolina clinic locations include Greenville, Clinton/Laurens, Newberry and Saluda, as well as a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center in Clinton.

The acquisition of Montgomery & Riddle Eyecare strengthens Eye Health America’s presence in the region and establishes a strategic partnership between Montgomery & Riddle Eyecare and EHA’s additional member practices in South Carolina, including Clemson Eye and Piedmont Surgery Center, acquired in March 2018.

“We’ve always prioritized innovation, ensuring our patients have access to the latest technology and treatments possible, and this partnership ensures we can pursue that mission for years to come,” said Dr. Keith Riddle, co-managing partner at Montgomery & Riddle Eyecare. “We’re proud to work with the respected community of physicians and surgeons at Clemson Eye and Piedmont Surgery Center to deliver the highest quality of patient care. With EHA’s breadth of knowledge and expertise in managing and growing practices, we will secure a brighter future for our patients and employees.”

Led by Dr. S. Jay Montgomery, and Dr. H. Keith Riddle, Montgomery & Riddle Eyecare offers advanced eye care treatments, including blade-free laser cataract surgery, corneal transplantation (DMEK/DSEK/PKP), LASIK/PRK surgery, advanced glaucoma treatments (MIGS), oculoplastic procedures, and diabetic eye care.

The partnership with Montgomery & Riddle Eyecare pushes forward Eye Health America’s goal to build a network of top eye care practices and ambulatory surgical centers across the Southeast. By combining the best doctors, facilities and leading-edge technology, practices have an opportunity to expand their geographic footprint, develop new service lines and treat more patients through advanced care.

Eye Health America was formed earlier this year by LLR Partners, a lower middle market private equity firm, and is led by an experienced team of industry veterans. EHA offers superior strategic and operational support to practice groups and ambulatory surgery centers, including financial support, administrative resources and business insights. This ensures member practices can meet strategic growth and business management metrics while providing the highest quality patient care and outcomes.
