What Happened?

Established in 1885 as Wall & Ochs, U.S. Vision, Inc. has evolved into a chain of optical centers and medical practices operating across the United States. U.S. Vision collaborates with several retail partners, such as JCPenney, Meijer Optical, Boscov’s Optical, Optical Center, and 2020 Vision Centers, where its stores are situated. With over 2,700 employees, U.S. Vision boasts an annual revenue of approximately $300 million.

On May 12, 2021, a subsidiary of U.S. Vision discovered that it had experienced a data breach, potentially compromising sensitive personally identifiable information and protected health information within its systems. Through its investigation, U.S. Vision determined that an unauthorized actor may have accessed this sensitive information between April 20 and May 17, 2021. Furthermore, U.S. Vision concluded that the sensitive information of its affiliates, Nationwide Vision Center, Nationwide Optometry, and SightCare, may have also been exposed. Consequently, U.S. Vision began notifying individuals whose information may have been impacted.
