Expert Cataract Care

Tuesday, May 21st, 2019 
   

South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners is committed to keeping our patients educated about early detection, treatment and available corrective surgeries.  Most people over 65 have some degree of cataract development.  A cataract is the gradual clouding of the natural lens that is inside your eye.  In order for the eye to work properly, it needs a clear lens to focus light on the retina.   Cataracts, the leading cause of preventable blindness, develop when the eye’s lens becomes cloudy which impairs vision.  Surgery to remove the old lens and replace it with a new clear lens is an effective method for improving poor eyesight due to cataract development.  

Eye Partners’ own Dr. Scott Petermann, Dr. Wes Ross & Dr. Garrett Webster perform LenSx® – a blade-free, laser-assisted cataract surgery as well as traditional cataract surgery in our new state-of-the-art surgery center in Valdosta.   This new technology is an advanced alternative to traditional cataract surgery, which utilizes surgical blades.  LenSx® provides the surgeon with micron-level precision and improved predictability.  The procedure is tailored to the surgeon’s specifications and delivers a remarkable degree of accuracy.  By creating the incision and fragmenting the clouded lens with LenSx®, the surgeon creates a precise opening for the new lens to be optimally positioned.  

You can watch our patient videos here – hear the stories from actual Eye Partners patients who went through the laster-assisted cataract surgery.   Eye Partners performs cataract surgery with LenSx® as an outpatient procedure at our surgery center in Valdosta.  Pre-op and post-op visits for Eye Partners patients can be scheduled in Valdosta, Tifton, Moultrie and Douglas.  Our South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners patients can schedule their visits at our Madison, FL location.  

South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners – with locations in Valdosta, Tifton, Moultrie, Douglas & Madison, FL – specializes in LASIK and cataract surgery with premium lens implants, glaucoma diagnosis and treatment, comprehensive eye exams for the whole family 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’ physicians or find our locations and hours, click here

Understanding the ORA System with VerifEYE+ Technology

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.

Our ORA System with VerifEye+ Technology, is an advanced 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.”

Benefits of the ORA System include:

  • Delivers exactness and verification in the actual surgery suite just prior to the procedure
  • Provides a continuous assessment of a patient’s eye throughout the entire procedure, giving precise measurements to the surgeon.

All About Eyes – in Douglas!

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018 
   

As most of you know, South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners has five locations.  We are going to take some time in the next few months to focus on each of these offices…not only the practices themselves, but the people that make them what they are!  This month, we’re focusing on our Douglas office.  Here’s a little about what makes this location tick.

John Moore LDO-Lab manager- has been in Douglas since the building was finished in 1999. With his many years of experience he is our go-to-guy to pick out a perfect frame and lens combo to fit your needs. Eye Partners Douglas’ Optical Shop has a new and fresh frame inventory that we are very excited about: Tiffany & Co., Tory Burch, Prada, Michael Kors, Versace, Ralph Lauren, Ray Ban, & Costa Del Mar just to name a few.

When it comes to getting in to see us, scheduling an appointment is fast and easy! With five doctors servicing the Douglas location the highly trained staff is excellent at fitting your needs and personality with the right doctor for you.

From cataract surgery to routine eye exams, the Douglas office has got you covered!

Angie Culler (Office Manager), Tina Jackson (Desk Lead/Optician Apprentice), and John Moore (LDO – Lab Manager) joined the Eye Partners team with years of experience working together. You can pick up on this immediately with the jokes and personal jabs they take at each other. They want the patients to feel at ease and at home so smiles and laughter are often heard throughout the office.

Whitney Phillips and Caleb Kerman (our Ophthalmic Technicians) both began their careers at Eye Partners during their high school years. Caleb is hoping one day to become and eye doctor himself and travels here daily from the BIG CITY of Hoboken!

Come by our Douglas office today and say hello – we’d love to see you!

Dr. Eric Kolisz: Focus on Cataract Care

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018 
   

Most people over 65 have some degree of cataract development. A cataract is the gradual clouding of the natural lens that is inside your eye.  In order for the eye to work properly, it needs a clear lens to focus light on the retina.  South Georgia/North Florida Eye Partners  is committed to keeping our patients educated about early detection, treatment and available corrective surgeries when it comes to cataracts. In speaking with our own Dr. Eric Kolisz, we find out about Eye Partners’ approach to caring for our patients with this issue.

“Our doctors and staff do an excellent job of taking the time to communicate properly with our patients prior to their cataract surgery,” says Dr. Kolisz. “People do not like surprises when it comes to surgery on the eye.  When they know what to expect with regard to surgery day, post-surgical care and expected outcomes of the surgery, that patient tends to be much happier.”

Cataracts, the leading cause of preventable blindness, develop when the eye’s lens becomes cloudy which impairs vision.  Surgery to remove the old lens and replace it with a new, clear lens is an effective method for improving poor eyesight due to cataract development.

Eye Partners now performs LenSx® – a blade-free, laser-assisted cataract surgery.

This new technology is an advanced alternative to traditional cataract surgery, which utilizes surgical blades.  LenSx® provides the surgeon with micron-level precision and improved predictability.  The procedure is tailored to the surgeon’s specifications and delivers a remarkable degree of accuracy.  By creating the incisions and fragmenting the clouded lens with LenSx®, the surgeon creates a precise opening for the new lens to be optimally positioned.

“Taking care of Eye Partners’ patients after cataract surgery is a breeze these days,” continues Dr. Kolisz.  “The combination  of our experienced surgeons’ abilities, our staff and the fact we have at our disposal all the latest and greatest technology, results in post surgical patients who are very happy.”

In conclusion, Dr. Kolisz says, “We communicate well with our patients then we meet and often exceed their expectations. That is fun for me to be part of!”

Eye Partners performs cataract surgery with LenSx® as an outpatient procedure at our state-of-the-art surgery center in Valdosta.  Pre-op and post-op visits for Eye Partners patients can be scheduled in Valdosta, Tifton, Moultrie, Douglas, and Madison, FL. To learn more, click here.
