RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Aug. 27, 2020 –  Continuing its focus to meet the needs of private practice doctors of optometry who are seeking customized transition models for their business, VSP Ventures today announced the acquisition of six optometric practices across California, including: Optometry at Redwood Shores in Redwood City; Eastgate Optometry Care in Garden Grove; Swan Family Optometry in Citrus Heights; Eagle Vision Eye Care in Sacramento and Roseville; Stanislaus Optometric Center in Modesto, and Norwalk Family Optometry in Norwalk.

All six practices will continue to operate under their existing name and all doctors and staff will remain in their roles.

“Since opening in 1989, the needs of our patients have always been a priority and that has never been more important than throughout COVID-19,” said John E. Larcabal, OD, founder of Norwalk Family Optometry. “My partner, Diane Almanza, O.D., and I provided emergency eye care throughout the pandemic, which was made safer and easier to deliver thanks to PPE and other key support provided by VSP Ventures. They share our patient-focused philosophy and offered a clear choice as we thought about our options to step back from managing the business but continuing to provide patient care.”

Manjeet Mann, OD, who purchased Optometry at Redwood Shores in 2014 near the heart of Silicon Valley, was looking to evolve her role within the practice without compromising their approach to delivering compassionate care in a technologically advanced setting.

“Partnering with VSP Ventures lets us preserve our legacy while gaining the support and expertise to take our patient experience to next level with the latest technology,” said Dr. Mann.

“VSP Ventures was formed in response to doctors asking us for a range of care-focused transition options,” said Steve Baker, president of VSP Ventures. “We’re grateful for the continued interest of so many doctors and we remain committed to offering unique options to meet their needs at different points in their career.”
