Prominent Ophthalmology Practice Celebrates 40 Years of Success in Atlanta, Georgia

Thomas Eye Group a multiple year winner of the Consumers’ Choice Award and a leading provider of eye care in the Greater Atlanta area achieves a new milestone.

Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) June 02, 2014

Thomas Eye Group, a leading metro Atlanta eye care provider offering comprehensive services including LASIK and medical, surgical and cosmetic eye care, has announced that it is celebrating 40 years as one of the region’s most preferred ophthalmology practices.

“We are very grateful for the patients and communities that have entrusted us with their eye care for the past 40 years,” said CEO Rod Roeser. “Reaching this milestone is a credit to the compassionate care and commitment of our doctors and staff.”

Founded by W. Kevin Thomas, M.D. and Stephen B. Levine, M.D., Thomas Eye Group has served the metro Atlanta community since 1974. The company began as a general ophthalmology practice in Sandy Springs with Dr. Kevin Thomas seeing adult patients and Dr. Stephen Levine, a pediatric ophthalmologist, treating pediatric patients.

Over the years, the practice has steadily grown to 8 locations around metro Atlanta and boasts 23 doctors providing highly specialized services including pediatric ophthalmology, cataract surgery, oculoplastics, retina and glaucoma in addition to routine eye exams, glasses and contact lenses. The office locations include Atlanta Medical Center, Decatur, Lilburn, Newnan, Roswell, Sandy Springs, Suwanee, and Woodstock.

“When I first went into practice, I was scared to death that I would have no patients to see,” said founder, Dr. Kevin Thomas, who retired in 2013. “My wife, Carol, tried to console me by telling me that all I had to do was treat everyone the way I would like to be treated, and to be fair and nice to everyone. I tried my best to accomplish those goals, and my wife must have been right, since the practice has grown to one of the largest ophthalmology practices in the country.”

The field of ophthalmology has seen significant advances over the years, and Thomas Eye Group has established a strong reputation in the industry for its highly experienced doctors, state-of-the art facilities and commitment to procuring leading edge surgical and diagnostic equipment.

In addition to caring for patients, Thomas Eye Group is actively involved in community events and charities including the Atlanta VisionWalk; North Fulton Hospital’s Power of Pink; Night of Spectacles; and Jog for a Cause. The company has also been chosen as the recipient of the Consumer’s Choice Award for seven consecutive years.
