RANCHO CORDOVA, CA — VSP Vision Care has acquired Community Eye Care, a North Carolina-based vision benefits company that manages vision plans on behalf of employer groups and health insurers and has 252,000 members. Through this acquisition, VSP is expanding its business in the Southeastern U.S.

CEC “will continue to operate independently to grow its business while both sides assess future integration and expansion opportunities,” according to a press release.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“This acquisition is a part of our broader strategy of accelerating membership growth to help fulfill our vision of providing access to affordable, high-quality eye care and eyewear to more people,” said Kate Renwick-Espinosa, president of VSP Vision Care.
