Yes, the VSP network doctor list includes highly skilled and professionally certified optometrists and ophthalmologists. Whether your VSP doctor is an optometrist or ophthalmologist, you'll receive a comprehensive vision exam and you can purchase glasses and contacts in their office.
Our optometrists are Therapeutic Pharmaceutical Agent (TPA) certified and our ophthalmologists are American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) certified. We choose our doctors carefully based on their professional licensing, work history, education, malpractice history, professional liability and ethics.
You can either go to the Find a Doctor section of vsp.com, or you can contact Member Services.
You don't need to notify VSP when you choose a doctor or change your VSP network doctor. When you're ready, simply make an appointment.
If your VSP coverage allows services from providers other than VSP doctors, you have the freedom to choose any eye care provider—a VSP network doctor or an out-of-network provider.
If you choose to see an out-of-network provider, your benefit may differ from the coverage you receive with a VSP doctor. You won't receive the eye health benefits your plan offers. VSP doctors can detect signs of health conditions and may assist you in coordinating care with your primary care physician, if necessary, to help keep you and your eyes healthy.
