Blue Sky Vision, the Largest and Fastest Growing Eye Care Group in Michigan, Recaps the Organizations’ 2018 Accomplishments

February 5, 2019

Blue Sky Vision is the largest and fastest growing eye care group in Michigan. The Blue Sky Vision family consists of a total of 11 partner practices, 64 high-quality eye care providers, and 600 plus team members.


Blue Sky Vision, the largest and fastest-growing eye care group in Michigan, announced today a recap of the organizations’ 2018 accomplishments. Over the course of last year, Blue Sky Vision welcomed seven new partners, including: Shoreline Vision, Michigan Optical, Vitreo-Retinal Associates, Sussex Vision Center, Optometrists of Lansing, VisionCare Associates, and EyeCare Associates of Haslett and Perry. Today, the Blue Sky Vision family consists of a total of 11 partner practices, 64 high-quality eye care providers, and 600 plus team members.

Last March, Blue Sky Vision relocated its headquarters to 4020 East Beltline Avenue NE, Grand Rapids, Michigan. The move successfully brought its administrative team together in one area while also supporting team member wellbeing. The new space features content-sharing technology, multiple meeting spaces, individual workspaces with height-adjustable desks, and access to natural light throughout. Blue Sky Vision also expanded its optical lab—including $1M of equipment purchases and a centralized distribution center for optical frames enabling increased quality measures and expedited turnaround time for patients.

Blue Sky Vision’s efficiencies, administrative team, and economies of scale also lead the organization to implement integrated software platforms to leverage the collective power of the organization, increase the potential for growth, create unprecedented support, and provide an exceptional partner and patient experience.

The Grand Rapids Business Journal nominated Blue Sky Vision in January as one of three 2018 healthcare newsmakers of the year, alongside Spectrum Health and Trinity Health. “2018 was a successful year for Blue Sky Vision,” said Dan Shoemaker, Blue Sky Vision’s Chief Financial Officer. “We attribute our accomplishments to our family of partners, whose passion for vision merges expert care with personalized, compassionate service.”
