VSP Opens New Optical Manufacturing Facility in Baltimore
New lab to process eyeglass lenses locally for VSP members with federal vision benefit
Rancho Cordova, Calif. – VSP® Optics Group announced the opening of a new VSPOne™ Optical Technology Center in Baltimore, Md. The new location will enable faster local service for the region’s dense population of federal employees and annuitants who have vision benefits through VSP® Vision Care, the nation’s largest vision and benefits service provider.
“Federal employees who chose the VSP ‘High Option’ for their vision benefit receive the added benefit of a fully covered UNITY anti-glare treatment on their UNITY performance lenses,” said Don Oakley, president of VSP Optics Group. “We are investing in our members and doctors through this new high-tech facility to continue delivering the high-quality products and services they expect, and deserve, from VSP.”
VSPOne Baltimore was also created to address an increase in regional demand for UNITY® Performance Optics lens products. The new facility, which began processing lens orders in early February, will provide local eye doctors with increased access to the full portfolio of UNITY lenses and coatings as well as other core ophthalmic products.
The Baltimore facility expands the VSPOne Optical Technology Center network to a total of 10 locations, including Columbus, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Hawaii, Olympia, Sacramento, St. Cloud, San Diego, and Tampa Bay.
