Vision Source Marks 30 Years of Championing Private Practice and Shaping the Industry at Annual Gathering the Exchange 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) KINGWOOD, TX — Last week, Vision Source, North America’s largest network of private practice optometrists, welcomed more than 2600 attendees to its annual national meeting, The Exchange 2021. The company celebrated its milestone 30th anniversary and supported members with a packed program which included three captivating keynote speakers, continuing education, a loaded exhibit hall featuring more than 100 vendors offering exclusive specials, peer-led Learning Labs and remarkable networking events featuring performances by American rock band 38 Special and one of country music’s most talented and decorated artists, Brad Paisley.

With an event theme of One Community, One Focus, One Future, Vision Source acknowledged and honored the tremendous success members have achieved through collaboration and a shared vision to provide patients the best care available while looking to a promising future in the decades to come.

“When you think about the common goal Vision Source members share to provide the best patient care and the collaborative efforts they employ in reaching their goals, it’s easy to see how Vision Source has grown into the nation’s premier network of private practice optometrists, helping to protect, shape and champion private practice over the last three decades,” said Amir Khoshnevis, OD, chief medical officer, Vision Source. “The Exchange gave us an opportunity to celebrate our success and set down the path to continue advancing private practice optometry for the next 30 years and beyond.”

“At The Exchange, we came together as one Vision Source community celebrating our heritage of success with a focus on the successful future we will shape together,” said Jeff Duncan, general manager of Vision Source. “Vision Source member doctors have a common focus on ensuring private practice wins that has resulted in a long history of well out-pacing industry growth. After 30 years, our Vision Source community remains intensely focused on the success of our members’ practices and a thriving future for private practice optometry.”

During The Exchange, members remembered their Vision Source journeys and what being a part of the community of doctors has meant for them and their practices:

“I actually found out about Vision Source by mistake when I went online to find a place to sell my practice seven years ago. I was really impressed with Vision Source’s commitment to independent optometry, so I jumped in with both feet,” remembers Dr. Nice of Nice Eye Care. “I really appreciate the friendship with other optometrists and the ability to share best practice ideas. Congratulations to Vision Source for 30 years. I appreciate all that you’ve done for us and we appreciate the chance to be on your team.”


“My Vision Source journey started 30 years ago, and one of my fondest memories comes from a time of great challenge when Hurricane Rita hit our practice and we were without power for two weeks. Vision Source had my back and sent a check to aid in my recovery,” recalls Dr. Steve Lai of Vision Source Meyer Park. “To me, it meant that I was part of an organization that cares about its members and their wellbeing. Thank you to the Vision Source team for always having my back and happy anniversary.”
