Wilmington Eye Is Expanding to Columbus County North Carolina To Increase Access To Essential Vision Procedures

As the need for essential vision procedures like cataract surgery and glaucoma surgery increase, Wilmington Eye is expanding to offer vision care and healthcare support to the community.

WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA, December 30th, 2020 — Wilmington Eye, the largest multi-specialty ophthalmology group in southeastern North Carolina, today begins to see patients out of Columbus Regional Healthcare System, located in Whiteville, North Carolina, the county seat for Columbus County.

Columbus County is a growing community in North Carolina, with more than 55,000 residents. Currently, residents have a handful of providers that they can turn to when essential surgical vision care, like cataract surgery and glaucoma surgery, is needed. As demand for these essential services continues to grow, residents are finding it difficult to get care in a timely manner. There is currently one board-certified ophthalmology practice in the county.

Now, residents can drive to the local hospital in Whiteville to meet with a board-certified, experienced ophthalmologist from Wilmington Eye. This expanded access will improve the overall healthcare system in Columbus County as the county continues to grow and demand for vision surgical services continues to increase.
