Comprehensive eyecare.
Superior patient experience.

A growing network of successful optometry and ophthalmology practices

EyeCare Partners is a growing family of independent primary optometry and ophthalmology practices, with hundreds of locations across several states. As the only group in the country partnering with both Optometrists and Ophthalmologists, we are the leaders in full scope medical vision care.

Featured Practice

Eyecarecenter was founded in 1954 by Rocky Stroud, OD, who opened his first eyecare practice in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Over the last few decades, our business has expanded to encompass one of the largest and most successful optometric practices in the nation. For more than half a century, the skilled and professional optometrists at eyecarecenter’s more than 250 office locations have delivered comprehensive eyecare services, at an affordable price, to patients across North Carolina and South Carolina.

“Having business partners with like cultures is extremely important in order to sustain and further succeed in today’s volatile healthcare marketplace. Because EyeCare Partners embraces the model of full scope eye health care, delivered by Doctors of Optometry, it is the practice acquisitions and management company our practice wanted to connect with.”
