VisionPros conveniently delivers contact lenses and glasses right to their customer’s door, anywhere in North America, and at a fraction of the cost of traditional retail optical stores. The highly scalable business model includes a rapidly growing, e-commerce platform and innovative suite of digital vision care tools. VisionPros also offers a unique subscription offering, with flexible monthly billing options, at some of the lowest prices in North America. The multi-disciplinary platform also includes a brick-and-mortar clinic, online/in-person dispensary and a lens laboratory that manufactures and distributes lenses to eyecare partners for their own affordable KIND eyewear line.

VisionPros’ digital platform shares many synergies with CloudMD’s existing platform and provides significant opportunities for cross-selling and integration. The e-commerce platform gives CloudMD direct access to almost 1 million unique customer accounts and further secures the Company’s footprint across North America. VisionPros’ revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020, surpassed $22 million with adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”) margin exceeding 10%.
