As we look forward to the first day of spring, I want to reassure everyone that we at Columbus Ophthalmology Associates continue to keep everyone’s health and safety at the forefront of everything we do. At this time, all of our doctors and almost all of our staff have been vaccinated. And, we continue to observe all CDC, Ohio Department of Health, and American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) recommendations to mitigate the transmission of COVID-19.

To our patients,

We hope you are healthy and well this January. It is with distinct pleasure that I announce some exciting news about our practice. As of this month, COA has become part of CVP Health, one of the fastest-growing ophthalmology management services organizations in the country.

CVP Health and their integrated ophthalmology network were founded through a partnership with the Cincinnati Eye Institute, one of the most respected and well-known facilities in the country. CVP Health provides expert administrative and strategic support, allowing us to continue delivering best-in-class service—whether through patient care, customer service, optical expertise, management of dry eye, or recruitment of new surgeons.

Through this dynamic partnership, COA will gain access to some of the most experienced administrative specialists in ophthalmology. We look forward to delivering the same expert outcomes and personalized care we are known for, while also having the strategic support necessary to add new services and meet our patients’ growing needs. Rest assured, as we move forward with this partnership, we will keep you up to date with any important news, updates, or information.

To see more about CVP Health, learn about our relationship with them, and hear from some of COA’s surgeons regarding this exciting partnership, please read this press release. Together with CVP Health, we will continue our mission of delivering excellence in eye care.
