Delivering the latest eye care technology to our patients is important to the physicians at South Georgia / North Florida Eye Partners. We specialize in advanced eye surgeries – such as iLASIK surgery and laser assisted cataract surgery – and stay on the cutting edge of technology that results in better care for our patients. We achieve the optimal experience for our patients through our surgeons, staff and our state-of-the-art surgery center in Valdosta.

Our surgery center – dedicated solely to ophthalmologic procedures – was completed in 2017 and is outfitted with the latest in surgical technology. With a surgery center in Valdosta, patients can receive pre-op and post-op care as well as undergo their actual procedures without having to be admitted into the hospital.

“Being able to perform the types of surgeries that we do for our patients in a state-of-the art facility and in a location that is convenient for them means everything,” says ophthalmologist Dr. Wes Ross. “The patient is the most important part of our practice, and I love knowing we provide top notch service and care.”

Eye Partners provide the expertise, experience, and technology to our patients in South Georgia and North Florida who would otherwise have to travel a much greater distance. Eye Partners’ team of ophthalmologists, Dr. Scott Petermann, Dr. Wes Ross, and Dr. Garrett Webster (joining our practice in August of this year), perform iLASIK surgery and cataract surgery with LenSx® as outpatient procedures at our state-of-the-art surgery center in Valdosta. Pre-op and post-op visits for our patients can be scheduled at any of our locations: Tifton, Valdosta, Douglas, Moultrie, and Madison, FL.


iLASIK: “Now I can put my best foot forward without my eyes holding me back.”

Would getting rid of contacts or glasses for good change your life?  For McClain Talley, iLASIK surgery did just that – no more contacts, and a much better quality of life. South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners offers the latest in iLASIK technology, and our physicians are second to none.

McClain is a recent graduate of UGA and just starting her real estate career. Before iLASIK, “I never felt comfortable in my contacts,” she says. “My eyes were constantly irritated and it caused me to feel tired.”

After iLASIK surgery performed by Dr. Scott Petermann, McClain (whose recovery time was less than one day) – could see clearly without the use of her contact lenses. “I could not be happier. It’s incredible. Now I can put my best foot forward without my eyes holding me back.” Watch her video below to see McClain’s story.

For people who have refractive errors, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, iLASIK surgery could be the solution.  The latest in laservision correction technology, iLASIK (laster-assisted in situ keratomileusis), uses a laser to cut the corneal flap instead of a traditional blade.
Dr. Scott Petermann and Dr. Wes Ross with South Georgia Eye Partners perform iLASIK surgery in our Valdosta location (at our new state-of-the-art surgery center).  Consultations and post-operative care is available in all of our locations: Tifton, Valdosta, Douglas, Moultrie and Madison, FL.

We are happy to answer any questions you might have in order to find out if you are a good candidate for the procedure.  For patients who aren’t candidates for iLASIK, we offer PRK.  Call us to make an appointment – you could be on your way to better eyesight in no time – just like McClain!

South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners – with locations in Valdosta, Tifton, Douglas, Moultrie, and Madison, FL – specializes in LASIK and cataract surgery with premium lens implants, glaucoma diagnosis and treatment, comprehensive eye exams for adults and children and a Dry Eye Clinic. Eye Partners also has Optical Shops fully stocked with designer frames and sunglasses to fit your style and personality.  To make an appointment with one of Eye Partners’s physicians or to find our locations and hours, click here.
