EyeSouth Partners has partnered with Retina and Vitreous of Texas, a retina-only practice in Houston, Texas. This marks EyeSouth’s thirty-eighth overall affiliation and the network’s first retina-only affiliation in the state of Texas.

EyeSouth is an eye care-focused management services organization backed by Olympus Partners.

Retina and Vitreous of Texas has been serving the greater Houston market for over 25 years, been involved in upwards of 180 medical publications, and developed a nationally-renowned fellowship program since it was established in 1997. Today, the practice is led by a team of 6 board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians who are recognized for their patient care as well as the teaching and training of future vitreoretinal surgeons.

Joseph Khawly, MD, FACS shared his excitement for this partnership in the news release, saying “RVT is thrilled to be EyeSouth’s first retina-only focused partner in the state of Texas. We look forward to working with the EyeSouth family of practices in Houston and expanding our presence throughout this great city and beyond!”

This affiliation will allow RVT to further expand what our trademark values are: quality, integrity, and personalized attentive medicine. It is our relentless focus to provide the very best for our patients, restore sight, expand innovative clinical research, and help reshape the future of vitreoretinal care.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to have such a reputable retina-only practice join us, especially in such a high-growth market like Houston,” said Dr. Atul Sharma, Georgia Retina vitreoretinal specialist and EyeSouth Board Member. “It’s clear that the mission at RVT of providing premier vitreoretinal care permeates through the entire practice, and we can’t wait to see how our partnership helps strengthen that mission in the future.”
