Vision Care Specialists Acquires Accent Optics

Jul 12, 2017

News provided by 08:35 ET Share this article DENVER, July 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Vision Care Specialists announced today that Denver eye-care firm Accent Optics has become the latest member of the growing Vision Care family. Accent Optics was founded by Frederick "Rick" Hurlbut, Jr., OD, a leading Denver optometrist who's been in private practice for more than 25 years. "This is an exciting time for everyone in the VCS family," said Vision Care Specialists Chief Executive Officer Jeff Poe. "Dr. Hurlbut's vision is to merge the best clinical eye care with the best retail optics to create an exceptional eye-care experience for customers and patients alike. This is identical to what we work toward every day, which is why this new practice will fit so well within our group." Dr. Hurlbut and his staff, including optician Stacy Vasquez, will continue to provide vision care and personalized optometric service to patients at their office at 2795 S. Colorado Blvd. That location will become the sixth in the VCS group, which also includes offices in Aurora, Highlands Ranch, Lakewood, Parker and downtown Denver. In joining Vision Care Specialists, Dr. Hurlbut becomes part of Denver's leading group of eye-care doctors, who've been providing cutting-edge optometry services in Colorado for more than forty years. A University of Nebraska-Lincoln graduate who went on to receive his Doctor of Optometry degree from the Southern California College of Optometry, Dr. Hurlbut says he is looking forward to working with Poe's team. "I'm thrilled about the opportunity to join such an illustrious practice," said Dr. Hurlbut. "This is a perfect fit for Stacy and I, since Jeff Poe and his team share our vision of making patient care our top priority. Their large network of doctors and staff will help us offer even more services to our patients." Founded in 1974, Vision Care Specialists has earned a reputation for making a difference in its patients' lives. While many eye-care practices have followed the industry trend of private equity buyouts or have joined franchises and hospital-owned physician groups to gain advantages of scale, VCS believes strongly in physician-defined standards of care. That dedication to an independent medical practice model allows VCS to invest in state-of-the-art technologies; in 2014, it became the first private practice in Denver to offer laser cataract procedures. Poe said management responsibilities for the Accent Optics office will be assumed by Julie Bartik, who will also continue to oversee VCS's downtown Denver location.
