Company Overview

Business Description
Vision Eye Institute Limited (VEI) is an ophthalmic services provider focused on the operation and management of eighteen consulting clinics, eight state of the art day surgeries and seven refractive and laser eye surgery centres in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Strategy Analysis
The rationale of the model is to remove administration and marketing tasks from the doctors to achieve economies of scale, and in equipment expenditure. Management has been careful to establish and preserve a culture of doctor sovereignty. The group has a hub and spoke model with a number of consulting practices feeding a well-resourced central surgery facility in each region of operation. This makes expensive, modern equipment more affordable via higher utilisation. In terms of growth VGH is particularly focused on Southern Queensland where there is a rapidly increasing population of retirees. There is also focus on strengthening and leveraging the Vision brand, which could become very valuable in what is otherwise a fragmented market.
