RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. – With a continued focus on supporting private optometry practices across Ohio via a partnership formed in 2021, VSP® Ventures and Optometric Management Group (OMG) today announced the acquisitions of Dayton Optometric Center in Dayton and Kettering, OH, and Oak Harbor Family Eyecare in Oak Harbor, OH.

Both Dayton Optometric Center and Oak Harbor Family Eyecare have built strong reputations in their communities over decades. Marc R. Gilbert, OD, and Heath B. Gilbert, OD, at the Dayton Optometric Center are involved with local and national optometric associations, bringing innovative ideas to the eye care industry.

“Joining VSP Ventures and OMG gives us peace of mind that our practice is protected and the legacy we have built will continue to thrive,” said Dr. Heath B. Gilbert. “We are now part of a larger optometric family that is committed to a care-focused vision and passion for comprehensive patient care.”

Oak Harbor Family Eyecare is the only optometry office serving the community and truly embodies the spirit of a small-town private practice.

“As I looked towards retirement, I wanted a partner that would prioritize the well-being of my patients and staff versus focusing on profits,” said Dr. Russ Maringer at Oak Harbor Family Eyecare. “VSP Ventures and OMG emerged as a perfect solution to preserve the sense of community that our practice has worked so hard to cultivate.”

“We are thrilled to add Dayton Optometric Center and Oak Harbor Family Eyecare to our growing family,” said Dr. David Anderson, co-founder and practicing optometrist at OMG. “Both practices have been pillars in their communities and have created lasting legacies by providing state-of-the-art patient care.”

“Our collaborative partnership with OMG is committed to protect the optometric profession and provide patient-focused eye care for years to come in the Ohio region,” said Tiffanie Burkhalter, president of VSP Ventures. “We are honored that the doctors have selected us as their transition partner.”
