VSP Network Doctor Questions

Does VSP's doctor network include optometrists as well as ophthalmologists?

Yes, the VSP network doctor list includes highly skilled and professionally certified optometrists and ophthalmologists. Whether your VSP network doctor is an optometrist or ophthalmologist, you'll receive a comprehensive vision exam and you can purchase glasses and contacts in their office.

How are VSP network doctors licensed?

Our optometrists are Therapeutic Pharmaceutical Agent (TPA) certified and our ophthalmologists are American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) certified. We choose our network doctors carefully based on their professional licensing, work history, education, malpractice history, professional liability and ethics.

How can I find a VSP network doctor?

You can either go to the Find a Doctor section of, or you can contact Member Services.

Once I find a VSP network doctor, or if I decide to change my VSP network doctor, how do I notify VSP of my selection?

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.

Can I see a provider who isn't part of the VSP doctor network?

If your VSP coverage allows services from providers other than VSP network doctors, your coverage will likely be less than when you see a VSP network doctor. You won't receive all the eye health benefits your plan offers. Plus, VSP network 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.
