When you own something, you treat it differently. There is an attachment and feeling of responsibility. The Employee Owners of Vision Care Specialists give you the best of the clinical and the business worlds: the stability, experts and technology needed in to excel in the rapidly evolving clinical environments, and the entrepreneurial spirit of a small company focused on personal attention.
In 2002 Vision Care Specialists established an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), and the founders began selling shares of the company to the ESOP Trust. With the final sale of the founders’ shares in 2012, Vision Care Specialists became 100 percent employee owned.
Everyone has a stake in the quality of our work, the success of our business, and making things more exciting for our patients. Our ownership program and entrepreneurial culture attract high-caliber people who take a personal stake in their work. Our culture values ensure that we succeed together by creating a service unique in the Colorado Eye Care – one that ensures excellence in vision solutions to enhance individual lifestyles.
Being an ESOP provides a unique structure that has created an island of stability in a turbulent industry. This stability is critically important in the eye care business as our employee owners are students of the industry, each possessing specialized knowledge and skills. Working with people who focus on the patient, create innovative solutions, deploy new technologies and move with agility creates a passion that is not always apparent with other Colorado Eye Care centers.
