Unifeye Vision Partners, a network of comprehensive eye care providers, has completed two strategic partnerships with San Luis Obispo-based Pacific Eye Surgeons and La Jolla-based Eye Care of La Jolla.
“My partners and I are delighted to finalize our partnership with UVP,” said Ahmad Amir, co-founder and managing partner of PES. “UVP is a like-minded, people-centric organization that places a premium on its relationships with its physician partners, and our drive to always deliver the best possible care to every patient that we treat. We have significant growth opportunities in the Central Coast and look forward to realizing them with UVP’s help.”
ECLJ leader David Michelson added, “We found UVP’s approach to partnership refreshing and believe that together, we can continue ECLJ’s legacy as a premier destination for outstanding eye care in the greater San Diego region.”
“We are very excited to welcome both Pacific Eye Surgeons and Eye Care of La Jolla to the UVP community,” said Sami Abbasi, President and CEO of Unifeye Vision Partners. “The physicians at PES and ECLJ have built highly successful ophthalmology practices that have treated thousands of patients over several decades, and each has earned a preeminent reputation for clinical excellence and compassionate patient care. We look forward to working with them and their teams to further their growth and expansion in their respective markets.”
UVP was formed in 2017 with a growth investment from private equity firm Waud Capital Partners. These two recent partnerships represent the continued execution of the Company’s strategy of partnering with leading eye care providers and supporting their growth.
