We’re on a mission to provide an efficient, clinically effective ecosystem that serves ophthalmologists and optometrists, thereby improving patient access to eye care, while delivering the best patient experiences and outcomes.
How We Can Help
Just as you are dedicated to providing your patients with the highest quality of clinical and surgical care, we are dedicated to supporting you and your practice to realize its highest potential. Sight Partners’ team has a proven track record of transforming practices into industry leaders and market influencers. Backed by capital and expertise, we partner to be renowned for clinical excellence and innovation.
Entrepreneurial Growth Partner
We are looking for entrepreneurial-minded doctors and practices looking to grow their practice, define their legacy, and build a pathway to future ownership of the practice.
Alternative to Private Equity
Private Equity is still active in the eye care industry. Sight Partners offers a unique business and equity alternative to the buy and flip mentality that may not be right for many practices.
As Warren Buffett said: “Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” This concept rings true as a principle we abide by, assuring that we forge partnerships that are lasting and growth oriented.
Improve the quality of peoples’ lives

(Japanese word for “Continuous Improvement”) We will always seek improvement by constantly innovating ourselves, our organization, and creating opportunities from challenges.
We believe there are significant advantages to productivity, trust, culture, and morale with an appropriately open environment.
Our people and partners are our most valued resource.
