See Clearly with iLASIK!

Thursday, May 18th, 2017 
   

PrintSeeing clearly is something that a lot of people take for granted.  It’s also something that can be achieved through iLASIK surgery – and without downtime or or discomfort.  Just ask Aaron Courington – a musician who depends on his eyes for reading music and being on top of the notes he plays (on many different instruments), came to South Georgia Eye Partners for iLASIK surgery, and now sees clearly without the help of glasses or contacts.  South Georgia Eye Partners offers the latest iLASIK technology, and our physicians are the best around. Aaron is a great example of how iLASIK surgery can change how you see the world around you. Watch Aaron’s video and hear his story in his own words.

If you 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 brand new surgery center).  Consultations and post-operative care is available in all of our locations: Tifton, Valdosta, Douglas 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 – this could be your moment!


iLASIK Surgery – “It simplified my life.”

PrintWould getting rid of contacts or glasses for good make your life a little easier?  South Georgia Eye Partners offers the latest iLASIK technology, and our physicians are top-notch. Alice Johnson is a perfect example of how iLASIK surgery can literally simplify your life.

Alice is extremely involved in missionary work, and has traveled as far as Uganda to help underprivileged communities through her church.  She noticed on one such mission trip that keeping up with her contacts – cleaning them, changing them out daily, etc. – was proving to be quite a hassle when traveling overseas.  Alice happened to be on the mission trip with Dr. Wes Ross, and they began discussing her eligibility for iLASIK.  They both decided she was a great candidate for the surgery.

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.

SGEP Welcomes Dr. Wes Ross

Monday, August 5th, 2013 
   

RossWes Ross is a hometown boy.  He grew up on a cotton and peanut farm in South Georgia and graduated from Tift County High School in 1998.  But upon graduation, Ross left his native home to pursue his education.  After graduating from Valdosta State University, he went to medical school at Mercer University in Macon.  Following Mercer, Ross completed his ophthalmology residency at the University of South Carolina in Columbia.  He always hoped to come back home, and now Wes Ross, M.D., is fulfilling that dream by joining South Georgia Eye Partners (SGEP) as an ophthalmologist.  A significant part of my training was at the VA hospital in Columbia.

“I really enjoyed working with the veterans, and found it to be one of the most rewarding parts of my residency,” says Ross.

Dr. Ross worked for Dr. Scott Petermann at SGEP after college, and he says that experience led him to pursue a career in ophthalmology.

“I’m really excited to be working with such a vibrant group of professionals that provide state-of-the-art eye care,” says Ross.  “SGEP is reaching out to many of the rural communities around the area, and I want to be a part of that.”

South Georgia Eye Partners, with locations in Tifton, Valdosta and Douglas, includes Scott Petermann, M.D., board-certified ophthalmologist and Dr. Alan Peaslee, Dr. Eric Kolisz and Dr. Ann Patel, all board-certified optometrists.

Dr. Ross, a member of Tift Regional Medical Center’s medical staff, will perform many surgical procedures at TRMC as well as in Douglas at Coffee Regional Medical Center.  His area of focus is comprehensive ophthalmology including cataract surgery, glaucoma and diabetic eye care, pediatrics, iLasik, and other advanced procedures.

Ross and his wife, Shannon – who has her master’s degree in nursing and was a clinical instructor for USC’s School of Nursing – have two young sons, Jay (4) and Eli (18 months).  These two little reasons factored into the family’s decision to move home.

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Ross, call 229. 391.4180.

The clients who have previously bout any of the cheap custom term papers that are produced and sold by this company have over and over attested to the fact that the professionals here never gamble with the selection n of the writers to write their papers and every time that they come to purchase essay here, they feel like the company gave them the finest writers to work for them given the fine quality of the resultant product or essay.

I SURVIVED ILASIK!

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011 
   

 Well, after 8 years of living, breathing and preaching Lasik, I finally experienced the procedure for myself!  Why did I wait so long you ask?  It’s kind of like the woman who’s husband is a builder yet she lives in shanty town.  I’ve seen my best friend, my husband and countless others lay under that machine, but it just never occurred to me that I should do it.  Don’t get me wrong, I was not tied to my glasses, I could fake it. However, my tricks eventually began to wear thin when patients started to notice that the woman selling them Lasik was holding the paper two feet from her face and holding her eye lids just as high as they would possibly stretch.  I agree, it was not a pretty sight! So on June 28, 2011, I became another truly satisfied patient.
Before it all began that day I was so excited!  I was telling everyone I was going to do it. Ilasik is great and ilasik is for me! I must admit though, when everything went quiet, it was like someone slapped me across the face and said WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? ARE YOU CRAZY?  I must admit it was a bit scary lying beneath that machine,  but when I heard a firm voice saying it was too late to back out, I immediately relaxed and proceeded to travel to my happy place.  I began to calm  and remember just exactly WHO was working on my eyes. It was the man I have called boss for 8 years, the man I would trust with my mom, the man I would trust with my child – Dr. Scott Petermann.
While visiting my happy place, from time to time I would here a word of encouragement and see a few flashing lights. Not once did I feel pain. When all was said and done and my vision cleared, I saw our head technician, Victoria holding out her hands to me.  I sat up in amazement!  I could see!
I was then led to an exam room where after being checked by the doctor, I was handed my bag of drops and out the door I went.  I went home, ordered take out, milked every ounce of sympathy out of my husband, then headed off to la la land as instructed.  I awoke the next morning to a whole new world!  Sure it was still a bit hazy, sure my eyes are a little red, sure people run screaming from me due to lack of eye makeup, but I CAN SEE! I can read! I can text! I can Facebook!  All without stretching my arms out and hiking my top lids over my eyebrows!
So, if you have questions about iLASIK, just call me, Karen Canada. I have the brochures, photos and all the info you will ever need.  I can even help you find your happy place!
