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.

What To Do When Eye Allergies Spring Up

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012 
   

March 20, 2012

Today marks the official first day of spring; however, you may have been feeling the onset of warmer weather – and allergies – for the past couple of weeks. This time of year is great for all kinds of outdoor activities, but it is notorious for causing itchy, watery eyes and can be particularly hard on contact lens wearers.

But, you don’t have to endure eye allergies all season long. When symptoms kick in, many people visit the local drug store to pick up a systemic antihistamine for relief; however, while these medications can clear up symptoms like runny noses, sneezing and coughing, they can actually make ocular conditions worse by reducing tear quantity and quality. So, if you’re experiencing dry, itchy, watery and/or red eyes, it’s best to schedule an appointment with your optometrist. Since treating vision-related allergies is not a one-size-fits-all approach, be sure to describe your conditions in detail so your optometrist can prescribe the most effective treatment.

In addition to visiting your optometrist for a prescribed eye allergy treatment, there are also some small everyday things you can to limit the severity of symptoms.

  • Limit exposure to environmental allergies by keeping windows closed during the worst parts of the season and by washing your eyes after being outside.
  • Don’t touch or rub your eyes.
  • Avoid sharing, and in some cases, wearing eye makeup.
  • Wash bed linens and pillowcases in hot water and detergent to reduce allergens.
  • For contact lens wearers, remember that extended wearing times, infrequent replacement of lenses and use of potentially irritating contact lens care products can significantly exaggerate symptoms. Proper lens care is an important part of keeping eyes comfortable and safe.
See the difference this spring by scheduling an appointment!
