Ophthalmology Practice M&A Market Outlook


Investment in the vision sector remained robust in 2020 with four new platforms emerging and numerous existing platforms continuing to grow through incremental M&A. Although consolidation in the vision sector is nothing new, the past three years have seen a significant uptick in private equity investment. Several factors are driving the continued interest in vision, including:

  • Strong demographic tailwinds driving demand
  • Intriguing practice dynamics for private equity investors
  • Attractive industry economics
  • Covid-19 considerations

Additional well-known factors include the diversity of business models being pursued (e.g. vertically integrated, co-management and retina focused), the growing regulatory and operational complexities of running a practice, the aging population, and the rising prevalence of ocular conditions.
