South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners: Leaders in Advanced Vision Surgery

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018 
   

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.

For example, our new ORA System with VerifEye+ Technology, is a new technology addition that assists physicians during cataract surgery by allowing them to obtain real-time, precise measurements of the eye during the actual procedure.  While measurements have always been, and still are, taken before cataract surgery, the exactness and verification this tool delivers in the surgery suite, immediately prior to the procedure, gives valuable data to the surgeon.

“Being able to perform the types of surgeries that we do for our patients in a state-of-the art facility and a in 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.”

In addition to the aforementioned procedures, Eye Partners also offers some eyelid and brow treatment options for patients.  “We have a lot of experience with both medical and cosmetic eyelid and brow lifts,” says Dr. Ross, “As well as Botox as a cosmetic treatment and medical therapy.”

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.

 

 


Meet Charles Jarrell – A Patient Testimonial on LAC Surgery at SGEP

IMG_8609No one tells our story quite like our patients.  At South Georgia Eye Partners, we value each and every person that walks through our doors – and when we are able to give our patients the gift of better vision, that’s a good day for everyone.

Charles Jarrell, a Laser Assisted Cataract surgery patient of Dr. Scott Petermann’s – and someone whose beloved profession requires a lot of driving – wrote to tell us what a difference this procedure made in his life.  We are honored to have helped improve Mr. Jarrell’s quality of life.  Here’s his story, in his own words:

“Dear Dr. Petermann:
I would have never believed the difference the cataract eye surgery has made in my life.  I am totally amazed.
I have always had to wear glasses to watch TV on my 42” screen.  After surgery that same morning, I sat down to enjoy “Out Numbered” on the Fox Channel.  I could not see; it was blurry.  I removed my glasses while getting up and totally blown away.  I could clearly see the TV screen.  I took it a step farther and went to the TV Guide channel; I could read.  No more glasses!!!!
Why am I writing you?  I am 74 years old and plan to work as long as my health holds out.  I do not have to work; I work because of the enjoyment it brings me.  I work with hospitals, colleges and universities and school systems in Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina.  I travel about 60,000 miles annually.
The next day after surgery, I had to drive to Thomasville for a meeting at a college. I was blown away once again because I could drive without my glasses.  The colors were so vivid.  The sky was bluer and the trees greener.
Due to my heavy travel schedule, it requires driving in the dark and in the early morning and at night.  For the past two years, I have had trouble driving when it was dark.  It was getting to the place where I waited until daylight to drive.  That really bothered me.  Due to the eye surgery, I do not have that problem anymore.
I want to commend you and your staff on the great customer service at South Georgia Eye Partners; it is tremendous.  I was taken in for my appointment without waiting.  Your staff is excellent.  They put you at ease and are very informative.  I will give you and everyone there an A+ rating and will highly recommend your services to anyone.
Respectfully,
Charles D. Jarrell
Management Consultant”
