(Dec. 28, 2020, Fort Myers, Florida) – Three leading optometry practices in Southwest Florida; Bayside Eye Center, Fort Myers Eye Center and Valentine Eye Care, have partnered with US Eye and Center For Sight. These partnerships represent a continued expansion of US Eye and its partner practices to deliver the highest level of patient care in the Southwest Florida market.

Center For Sight is a founding member practice of US Eye, a physician-led, patient-centric network of eye care practices committed to providing exceptional patient service through premium technology and unrivaled provider expertise.

All three practices will assume the well-known local brand name, Center For Sight, bringing the total number of Center For Sight clinics in Southwest Florida to fourteen. During the transitional period, the three practices will integrate their operations with the US Eye model to enrich patient care and expand service offerings, while maintaining the same close personal relationships each provider has built with their patients over the years.

“Dr. Todd Lang, Dr. Bradley Middaugh and Dr. Daniel Valentine have been serving patients in Southwest Florida for decades, establishing themselves as elite eyecare providers in the region,” said David Shoemaker, M.D., founder and CEO of Center For Sight and US Eye. “Center For Sight now operates practices in Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, Collier and Lee counties. The three additional practice locations will connect our northern and southern offices and provide greater accessibility for our patients. It is our goal to partner with only the best and brightest providers, and Dr. Lang, Dr. Middaugh and Dr. Valentine are clearly a cut above. I am thrilled to have them on our team and these partnerships further establish Center For Sight as Southwest Florida’s premier eye care provider.”
