Kurt Heitman, MD
Southern Eye Associates
“Planting Seeds”*

Dr. Kurt Heitman is a comprehensive ophthalmologist at Southern Eye Associates in Greenville, South Carolina.  His greatest joy is his relationship with God and his family.  He is committed to being a good husband to his wife, Robin, a good father to their two sons, an eye surgeon who pursues excellence and compassion with his patients, and a stalwart friend to his partners.

Dr. Heitman’s career is marked by his leadership in advocacy for the ophthalmology profession and his fellow ophthalmologists and their patients – locally, nationally, and abroad.  He has served as the Secretary for State Affairs for the American Academy of Ophthalmology which advocates before state and federal governments on behalf of ophthalmology physicians and exposes members to critical issues pertaining to ophthalmology.

Dr. Heitman has also been involved in medical missions to Ecuador, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic, and he was the Chairman of the Board, Founder, and Volunteer Physician of the non-profit organization Surgeons for Sight, which delivered eye care for those in need.

In 2024, the COS is excited to have Dr. Heitman and his practice be the hosts of the 2024 COS Annual Meeting in Greenville, South Carolina, July 24-28th!
