Eyecare Group Adds 3 Practices, Now Has 100+ ECPs

It’s the ‘largest private ophthalmology practice’ in the US.




PHILADELPHIA — Vantage EyeCare LLC has added three groups to its roster.

The groups are Horizon Eye Care; Kay, Tabas, Niknam, DiDomenico Ophthalmology Associates; and Ophthalmic Associates. They join Century Eye Care, Northern Ophthalmic Associates and South Jersey Eye Physicians, previously announced, in “the next wave of skilled providers to expand the geographic and service line diversity of Vantage EyeCare,” according to a press release from Vantage.

Launched in 2018 as the largest private ophthalmology practice in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, Vantage EyeCare was originally made up of 45 providers, 25 service locations and 300 employees. In a year’s time, Vantage EyeCare has grown to be the “largest private ophthalmology practice in the country,” with 107 providers, 45 service locations and 700 support staff, the release states.

“Clearly, our patient-focused, physician-led integration model is resonating with our peers,” said Dr. Richard Prince, president of Vantage EyeCare. “Our phenomenal growth is the best proof of concept – that quality physicians can come together to achieve scale without giving up the ability to continue making business and clinical decisions that are in the best interest of our patients.”

The release notes: “Nationally there is mounting pressure on physicians to sell their practices to large health systems, hospitals or even private investment companies. By forming Vantage EyeCare, the group seeks to ensure that doctors and staff continue to thrive in an environment of success which, in turn, best serves their patients.”
