Gryphon Investors has acquired Vision Innovation, a provider of ophthalmology and optometry services, from Centre Partners.

Vision Innovation is based in Annapolis, Maryland, and provides eye care services throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Since receiving its investment from Centre Partners, the firm has expanded from a local practice to a multi-state platform serving 140 providers across 63 clinic locations and 11 ambulatory surgery centers.

“The sale of VIP represents the successful execution of our strategy of proactively identifying and partnering with an attractive physician practice to build a best-in-class platform within the large and growing ophthalmology sector,” said Jeff Bartoli, a senior partner at Centre Partners. “We are proud of the rapid growth that VIP has achieved and greatly appreciate the dedication and leadership of the Company’s management team and physician partners. We wish the team continued success under new ownership.”

Centre Partners and Vision Innovation Partners were advised by Moelis & Company, Coker Capital Securities LLC, Dechert LLP and Arent Fox LLP.
