The Preferred Choice for Ophthalmologists Ready to Transition

Acuity Eye Group is a physician-owned organization whose unique structure, which does not include any private equity investment, has allowed us to grow to one of the largest vertically integrated eye care groups in the country. We are continuously searching for practices to join our group. Our most successful transactions involve physicians who wish to practice for another 10-25 years without the administrative burden of running their office.

Headshot of Dan Coden

"I was thrilled to join Acuity Eye Group.  Acuity Eye Group has positioned itself as a leader in the industry and made the transition to the group seamless.  The entire team is dedicated to patient care and gives me the autonomy to practice the way I want and they handle the ‘headaches’ and risks. I’m able to focus solely on my patients and growing my business.”

- Dr. Dan Coden, La Jolla Laser Vision & Eye Center

"My wife Esther and I built up Premiere Surgery Center over a 25-year period. Selling this and the Premiere building was hard for us, but the folks at Acuity made it easy. They communicated instantly, and followed through on every single promise they made. We were told at the beginning of the relationship that they would "say what they were going to do - and then do what they said they were going to do."  That is exactly the experience we had, and everything was handled with grace and professionalism.  Thank you, Tom Chang and Acuity!”
