In 1998, Dr. Marvin Schrum, O.D. and Dr. Stephen Pollock, M.D. founded CEC with one simple idea — offer vision plans that simplify routine eye care.
As providers themselves, they recognized the need for an uncomplicated vision plan that was both easy to administer and easy to use. Business development activities initially focused on securing contracts with health plans. In 2000, the founders made the strategic decision to focus instead on employer-based vision benefits.
Over the years, as the company has grown, CEC’s mission has remained focused on offering the simplest vision plan ever designed. CEC’s portfolio of clients has expanded to a variety of employer groups, including hospitals, financial institutions, city and county governments, school systems, manufacturers and retailers. We continue to see excellent satisfaction from clients, members, and providers. Moreover, our CEC team members pride themselves on delivering prompt, professional and friendly service. The company’s leadership continues to explore innovative ways of improving what is already considered to be the best vision benefit in today’s market.
