Eye Health America’s growth continues with the onboarding of a retina specialist in the Upstate

GREENVILLE, SC – Piedmont Retina Associates, led by Dr. Nick McLane, MD officially joined the Eye Health America (EHA)/Clemson Eye family on April 30th. Dr. McLane has been a leader in vitreoretinal eyecare in the Upstate for over 35 years. He and his team will merge into the existing Clemson Eye Greenville Pelham Road clinic where he will be able to expand retina/posterior eyecare services to complement its full-service sub-specialty offering to the Upstate region. Clemson Eye is a well-established group of eye physicians and surgeons offering patients innovative diagnostic services and treatment.

Dr. McLane graduated from the University of South Florida College of Medicine and completed the first combined retina fellowship program at Louisiana State University Medical School Department of Ophthalmology and Oschner Clinic in New Orleans, LA. Dr. McLane is trained to diagnose, treat, and manage diseases and trauma of the retina and vitreous. He has a particular interest in the diagnosis and treatment of retinopathy of prematurity and has been treating infants born prematurely at Prisma HealthCare’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for several decades.

EHA has seen substantial growth in the past three years, and now includes 29 locations, ambulatory surgical centers, and more than 800 employees. Since its formation in March 2018, it has increased its network to include more than 60 eye doctors. The organization plans to continue investing in technology and services that create value, including patient engagement technology and revenue cycle management.

Eye Health America was formed in 2018 by LLR Partners, a lower mid-market private equity firm, and is led by an experienced team of eye care veterans including Co-CEOs, Mary Lou Parisi and John Swencki; Chief Medical Officer, Cathleen McCabe, MD; Chief Development Officer, Philip Isham and more.

By combining the best doctors, facilities, and leading-edge technology, EHA practices have an opportunity to expand their geographic footprint, develop new service lines and treat more patients through advanced care. For more information on Eye Health America, visit
