Alpine Capital LLC has provided $7.5 million in financing to Claris Vision Holdings, a company that brings together several New England eyecare practices.

The financing will go toward working capital, including the refinancing of outstanding debt, according to a press release. It will also support capital expenditures and potential future acquisitions.
