Who We Are

One of the first optometry groups in the nation, Today’s Vision was founded in 1984 as a franchise model. In 2005, the licensees bought the company from the two original owners and established its network format.

Today, TVLC is comprised of individually-owned and individually-operated optical practices that have joined together for mutual benefits. Unlike the franchise model, each doctor makes his or her decisions regarding all aspects of the owner’s operations.

Think of us as an association.  We exist to provide benefit and support to help make you successful.

From day one, our membership fee has been fixed (no percentages which penalize you as your grow). 
Each licensee receives a protected service area in which TVLC will not add another office.
Service areas are based on a scientific model of households vs. a standard x-mile radius.
We value the cohesiveness of our group size vs. unlimited growth. 

Texas Proud

Our Texas-based locations include Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, South Texas and Tyler. Just as everything is bigger in Texas, we have many cities and territories available for those wanting to start their own practices – or selected existing practices who would like to keep their names and enjoy our benefits.


Special Attention For Startups

If you are considering opening a new practice, we have the knowledge and expertise on onboarding more than 30 such practices.    We help you find your location, obtain financing, introduce architects and contractors, provide budgets, handle your managed care credentialling, make available existing office expertise and guide you personally – often times working with you months before you open your doors. This expertise has been honed into a detailed opening checklist.

Talk with us today and experience our responsiveness (and guidance) before deciding which group to join.
