VSP Global and ZEISS Partner to Deliver Exclusive Offerings and Expanded Choice for Doctors and VSP Members


Rancho Cordova, Calif. — In an effort to provide greater opportunities for doctors and value for members, VSP Global and ZEISS have partnered together to offer an exclusive VSP member rebate of $35 on select ZEISS progressive lenses, available exclusively through Premier Program practices starting July 1.

Through the partnership, VSP Global Premier Program practices will also enjoy upgraded status in the ZEISS Practice Advantage Program, which includes education offerings, access to practice consultants, special pricing for optical and ophthalmic equipment and more.  Eligible practices will automatically enroll at the upgraded Silver Level, while practices already enrolled in the ZEISS loyalty program will be upgraded to the next level.

“We’ve heard from doctors participating in the Premier Program that they want  more choice in the products offered through the program, as well as more exclusive offers that drive patient growth and retention, ” said Michelle Skinner, Senior Vice President of Omni Channel Development for VSP Global. “By collaborating with ZEISS, we’re able to respond and better meet the needs of doctors, as well as VSP’s 78 million members.”

In addition, the partnership will provide VSP members with a six-month satisfaction guarantee on ZEISS DriveSafe Lenses, available at all VSP doctor locations. Both offers are available from July 1 – December 31st, 2017.

“Our mindset is about creating relevant lifestyle solutions and products that help doctors to differentiate their practices and delight their patients,” said Karen Roberts, Vice President of Global Business Solutions, Carl Zeiss Vision International. “We’re excited to partner with VSP and bring these value-adding ZEISS programs to the market.”
