BINGHAM FARMS, Michigan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Sunvera Groupa management services organization providing support services to ophthalmology practices across multiple subspecialties, has formed a new partnership with Fit Eye Center. This partnership will strengthen the Sunvera Group’s presence in the Detroit metro market and expand its growing network of eye practices and surgical centers.

The Fite Eye Center, which has offices in Clinton Township and Romeo, Michigan, specializes in cataract surgery and LASIK surgery, as well as the treatment and management of other eye conditions, including glaucoma, diabetic eye disease and comprehensive eye care. Fite Eye Center is operated by ophthalmologists, Dr. Steven Fite and Dr. Benjamin Monson, who have earned a reputation in the community for their expertise in treating the most challenging ophthalmic conditions.

“For the past 21 years, Fite Eye Center has been committed to providing the highest level of patient care in the Detroit metro area,” Dr. Fite said. “We are delighted to partner with the Sunvera Group and share our mutual commitment to providing exceptional eye care and eye surgery for many years to come.”

The Sunvera group continues to grow and forge new partnerships. Since 2018, the company has added nine partners in Michigan and Ohio.

“It is a pleasure to welcome Dr. Fite and Dr. Monson to our growing network of ophthalmologists,” said Greg Nodland, CEO of Sunvera Group. “We believe that Fite Eye Center’s experience as a leader in cataract surgery and laser vision correction is a natural extension of the Sunvera Group as we continue to expand our offerings and access to patients to these much-needed eye care services.”
