VSP Ventures Announces Acquisition of Nevada’s Family Eyecare Associates

By
RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif.—VSP Ventures said Monday that is has acquired Family Eyecare Associates, which comprises two offices located in Sparks and Reno, Nev. Truly a family practice, Family Eyecare Associates was founded in 1974 by Dr. Denis Humphreys and includes his son, Dr. Troy Humphreys, and his daughter-in-law, Dr. Becky Humphreys, as well as Drs. Evan Marchant, Cori Cooper, Umari Duffus, Katie Braganza and Tonya Hubbard, according to the announcement.

The doctors at Family Eyecare Associates provide comprehensive eyecare services, including eye exams, ocular disease treatment and refractive surgery co-management. The practice will continue to offer these services and operate under the same name, and its eight doctors and 40 staff will remain in their roles.

The terms of the transaction were not disclosed. VSP Ventures had previously added eyecare locations in Nevada with the acquisition of EyeZone in mid-2019, as VMAIL reported. Overall, VSP Ventures has acquired two practices with eight combined locations in the state of Nevada, a spokeswoman told VMAIL.

At Family Eyecare, Dr. Humphreys has successfully established his practice over the past 40 years as a pillar in the communities it serves, combining his passion to treat every patient as an extended family member with state-of-art eyecare equipment.

“Being able to offer technology that exceeds the standard is a big differentiator for our practice,” Dr. Humphreys said in the announcement. “Partnering with VSP Ventures means the opportunity to access certain equipment that will help us continue to provide the level of care our patients are accustomed to. Most importantly, we know VSP Ventures is dedicated to advancing the profession of optometry and supporting patient care—reasons that motivate us every day.”

“We’re excited to welcome Family Eyecare Associates to the team and honored that when Dr. Humphreys looked to transition his practice, he chose us,” VSP Ventures president Tiffanie Burkhalter said. “He’s built a practice known for its commitment to care and community, and our priority is preserving that patient-centric legacy for the future.

VSP Ventures, a unit of VSP Global, has acquired eyecare practices with a total of more than 24 locations. To learn more, VSP network doctors can visit: www.VSPVentures.com.
