RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., June 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — VSP Global® announced today® that it has reached a final agreement to acquire Visionworks based in San Antonio, Texas, based on authorized authorization. With an area of more than 700 branches in nearly 40 states, the acquisition of Visionworks will be the largest VSP network investment in its 65-year history. Three years after its creation, the organization began to offer itself for purchase or merger with other organizations, but it has no strategic interest. Unimpressed by the lack of interest, CVS developed expansion plans and signed its first multi-state contract with Masters, Mates and Pilots Local 90 Union in 1958. Under the agreement, CVS would pay receivables in the port cities of Boston, New York, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Galveston, Seattle and Portland. Seven years later, after many small agreements had strengthened the legitimacy of the business concept, CVS signed a contract in 1965 with the Western Conference of Teamsters, which agreed to include the company`s Vision Care program as part of its service package. In 1968, CVS was forced to move to a larger headquarters from Oakland to Sacramento.   In the late 1960s, efforts were made to expand beyond California`s borders, and in 1968, the company signed an agreement with Hawaii on future work in the state. In 1974, she took control of the Nevada Vision Service administration, which led CVS to sign its first client in the state.
In 1976, THE CVS officially became VSP and the company expanded its operating area to a territory of four states assuming responsibility for the Oregon Service Vision Plan. In 1972, the company opened its own optical laboratory in Sacramento to keep costs low. Later, the Sacramento lab would produce more than 2,000 pairs of glasses a day. In 1979, the company signed its first contract with a healthcare organization (HMO) under the name VSP, which marks the entry into the market for administered care, which was a major market for VSP at the end of the century. In the late 1970s, with 2.4 million members, VSP became the star of vision Care`s market.  In 2017, VSP Global remained “before the turn” and invested in RightEye, “an eye-tracking technology that uses game-based vision tests to reveal details about visual speed and accuracy, processing depth and even dry eye.”  Text of Vision Service Plan v.
