While health insurance will help protect you from financial loss due to unexpected eye injury (and some disease), vision insurance is considered to be more of a “wellness benefit”. But, eye care benefits aren’t just for vision correction. In fact, an eye exam can detect conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure, years before symptoms emerge—which could equal major healthcare savings. Vision Insurance can help reduce expenses for routine eye exams plus things like glasses, contacts, and even refractive, cataract or retinal surgeries (with some plans). Some plans also have contracted fixed prices for added benefits like anti-reflective and glare coatings. To see which vision plan is best for your needs, compare the benefits and costs by contacting your agent.
