Spectrum Vision Partners Announces Ninth Affiliation and First Affiliation in New Jersey: EyeCare 20/20December 12, 2019
OCLI, a Spectrum Vision Partners (SVP) managed practice, has announced the addition EyeCare 2020 in East Hanover, NJ, an esteemed LASIK, Laser Cataract and Ophthalmology practice with experience spanning decades. Eyecare 2020 is the ninth affiliation of Spectrum Vision Partners’ managed practices since November 2017, when SVP partnered with the growth-oriented private equity firm, Blue Sea Capital, and represents the first such affiliation in New Jersey, where SVP expects to continue to rapidly expand.
Over the past decades, Dr. Silverman and the team at EyeCare 2020 have built a respected practice, serving patients from East Hanover, Parsippany, and throughout New Jersey. Dr. Silverman has performed thousands of LASIK and Laser Cataract surgeries. EyeCare2020 is the first practice in New Jersey to offer custom wavefront LASIK with the ALLEGRETTO WAVE® laser. Joining OCLI will allow this already successful practice to grow further in the region and enhance patient service.
“As innovators in our field, joining the OCLI team was a natural fit,” explains Cary Silverman, MD. “As the first New Jersey practice to partner with OCLI, we look forward to growing OCLI further in New Jersey and enhancing our patients’ experience.”
SVP supports the growth, administration and management of some of the leading ophthalmology practices and eye ambulatory surgery centers in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut Tri-State area. In addition to OCLI, managed practices include Island Eye Surgicenter, Ophthalmic Consultants of Connecticut (OCC), New Vision Cataract Center, Long Island Eye Care, Eye Institute of New York, Glaucoma Associates of Long Island, Precision Eye Care and Huntington Eye Care.
In its first year of business, SVP grew from 400 employees to a current total of nearly 800. The organization recently relocated to a new corporate service center in order to provide improved customer service. The company offers its network of multi-specialty ophthalmologists a complete range of business services.
Tom Burke, CEO of Spectrum Vision Partners, commented, “This partnership not only marks OCLI’s first entry into New Jersey, but also represents a first opportunity for Spectrum Vision Management to work with world-class eye health surgeons and specialists in that state. Dr. Silverman and his team of doctors and surgeons will be a welcome and respected addition to the growing roster of OCLI. We are excited to provide our services to a practice of this caliber.”
