NVision Eye Centers - Buyer Spotlight

PE Firm

Until 2020, NVision Eye Centers was a large California practice owned by ophthalmologist Dr. Tom Tooma. With so many PE investments taking place from 2015 onward, many were watching NVision to see when it would transact.

Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan ("Teachers") finally made that investment in 2020.


NVision has acquired practices and added physicians to its existing clinics on a regional basis. We now expect more aggressive growth with private equity backing.


NVision started in Southern California and grew out to Oregon, Nevada, and Washington. It also has a practice location in Toronto, Canada. It's California locations are both in Southern and Northern California (Sacramento).
