Bayside Eye Center, a fixture in the Punta Gorda community, has partnered with US Eye and Center For Sight, expanding Center For Sight’s Southwest Florida footprint to 14 locations.

US Eye operates 27 clinics and three surgery centers across the Southeast United States, positioning the company as one of the largest comprehensive eyecare delivery systems in the nation.

Dr. Todd Lang founded Bayside Eye Center in 1991 and has built a thriving practice over the last 30 years. Through this partnership with US Eye, Dr. Lang’s patients will have direct access to world-renowned surgeons, cutting-edge technology and additional service lines, including dermatology, facial cosmetic surgery, skin care and audiology.

“Dr. Todd Lang has built a successful medical optometric practice through his commitment to providing high-quality care and building respectful relationships with his patients. His values directly align with our patient-first approach and we are thrilled he chose to partner with US Eye,” said David Shoemaker, M.D., founder and CEO of Center For Sight and US Eye.

Dr. Lang is a well-known provider in the Punta Gorda community and has been recognized as a multi-year winner in the Best of Charlotte awards, where he has been voted “Best Optometrist.” He is currently the only optometrist board-certified in Lifestyle Medicine in the United States.

“I strive to deliver personalized, holistic healthcare utilizing advanced technology and clear communication. This allows for adjustments in medications and lifestyle to mitigate systemic disease, which often causes secondary eye diseases. Partnering with US Eye and Center For Sight will augment my goal of not only providing great visual outcomes, but helping patients ensure they keep it for their lifetime! The repertoire of services and providers available through US Eye will be a valuable benefit to my patients and the Punta Gorda community at large,” said Dr. Lang.

Dr. Lang will integrate practice operations and administrative functions with Center For Sight to further enhance his service offerings, while maintaining the same close personal relationships he has built with his patients over the last 30 years. All existing patient appointments will proceed as scheduled and patients will continue to be seen by Dr. Lang at his existing practice location at 314 N. Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda, FL 33950.
