Maryland Eye Associates, a leading provider of ophthalmology services in Maryland, has been acquired by Chesapeake Eye Care. Maryland Eye Associates operates locations in Annapolis and Prince Frederick, Maryland and is led by Dr. Michael Dodd and Dr. Jason Wanner. Chesapeake Eye Care operates a leading network of ophthalmology practices in the Mid-Atlantic region and is highly focused on delivering superior outcomes and expanding patient access to high quality clinical care.

“Since starting this practice in 1977, I have been honored to serve our communities and patients. Dr. Wanner and I spent significant time considering our alternatives in a rapidly changing environment for healthcare providers and concluded that both our team and our patients will be best served by joining with Chesapeake Eye Care. The transaction allows us to continue to deliver innovative procedures with industry-leading technologies while maintaining our focus on our true passion, the delivery of high quality care. Chesapeake Eye Care has established a reputation as a premier provider in our market, and we could not be more excited to partner with them,” said Dr. Dodd.
