NV Eye Surgery Enters Partnership with Comprehensive EyeCare Partners

Las Vegas, NV (April 7, 2021) Comprehensive EyeCare Partners, one of the largest vision care practice management organizations in the nation, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with NV Eye Surgery, a leading ophthalmic practice in Southern Nevada.

NV Eye Surgery, led by surgeon and founder Peter DeBry, M.D., has been serving Southern Nevada since 2014, treating patients with cataracts, glaucoma, ocular surface disease, and other ophthalmic disorders.  Dr. DeBry has been a pioneer and developer of several new surgical techniques. He was among the first surgeons in the country to perform a new technique for pediatric surgery (trabeculotomy with the iScience cannula) and developed a new technique for glaucoma implant surgery. His experience and skills have made him a great choice to help care for many complex conditions including glaucoma, corneal, cataract, and refractive procedures.

“The focus of my practice has always been to create a place where patients can get world-class eye care.  I am excited to be included with the other quality doctors and practices within the Comprehensive EyeCare Partners family.  As a group, I believe we are well on the way to becoming the premier eye care group in Las Vegas and the Western United States,” said Dr. Peter DeBry.

NV Eye Surgery is the sixth ophthalmology practice to partner with Comprehensive EyeCare Partners in the state of Nevada.  “We believe the partnership with Dr. DeBry and NV Eye Surgery is a great fit and we’re very pleased to work with him in continuing to serve the eye care needs of patients across Southern Nevada,” said Charles L. Smith, CEO of Comprehensive EyeCare Partners.  “This partnership is in alignment with our mission of building the nation’s preeminent eye care services company by partnering with world-class physicians, driving superior clinical and surgical outcomes, and optimizing the patient experience.”
