RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif.—VSP Optics Group, a division of VSP Global, has named Robertson Optical Laboratories, Inc. as the “Unity Independent Lab of the Year.”

The award is presented annually to an independent optical laboratory that has demonstrated exceptional quality of work, consistently beating Unity targets, and providing superior customer service, according to VSP Optics.

Robertson Optical was founded in 1958, and has since grown to become one of the leading independent labs in the U.S. In addition to its optical lab in Atlanta (Loganville), Ga., Robertson Optical operates labs in both Columbia and Greenville, S.C.

“We congratulate the entire Robertson Optical team on their outstanding performance and the passion shared for Unity’s product portfolio,” said Dave Delle Donne, senior vice president of business development for VSP Optics Group. “We look forward to more collaboration in the year ahead to bring even more providers and patients access to Unity, the industry’s fastest growing ophthalmic lens brand.”

Danny DeVito, vice president of sales and marketing for Robertson Optical, acknowledged the “value and opportunity” the Unity brand brings to the marketplace. “We are a company built on the simple philosophy of providing independent eyecare professionals with premium lens solutions and unparalleled service,” he said. “The Unity brand brings a unique value proposition to the market and we are honored to be named by VSP Optics Group as the Unity Lab of the Year.”

VSP Optics Group will make a $2,500 charitable donation on behalf of Robertson Optical to a Great Outdoor Adventure Trips, which Robertson has designated. Great Outdoor Adventure connects at-risk youth with mentorship and outdoor adventures that help foster real world responsibility, leadership and job opportunities.
