ATLANTA—Eye Health America

Montgomery & Riddle’s four South Carolina clinic locations are Greenville, Clinton/Laurens, Newberry and Saluda, and it also operates the state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center, The Surgery & Laser Center at Professional Park, in Clinton.
EHA, which is based here, was formed earlier this year by LLR Partners

In addition to Montgomery & Riddle, EHA’s member practices include The Eye Associates, Clemson Eye and Piedmont Surgery Center.
“We’ve always prioritized innovation, ensuring our patients have access to the latest technology and treatments possible, and this partnership ensures we can pursue that mission for years to come,” Dr. Keith Riddle, a co-managing partner at Montgomery & Riddle Eyecare, said in the announcement. “We’re proud to work with the respected community of physicians and surgeons at Clemson Eye and Piedmont Surgery Center to deliver the highest quality of patient care.”
Montgomery & Riddle Eyecare offers advanced eyecare treatments, including blade-free laser cataract surgery, corneal transplantation (DMEK/DSEK/PKP), LASIK/PRK surgery, advanced glaucoma treatments (MIGS), oculoplastic procedures, and diabetic eyecare.
“Montgomery & Riddle Eyecare is the perfect addition to our South Carolina collaborative in both quality care and culture,” Rod Roeser, CEO of Eye Health America, said in the announcement. “We look forward to ensuring all of our providers have the advanced tools and business acumen they need to focus on what they do best — caring for patients.”
