Vision insurance

Vision 83114104 smallAn estimated 11 million Americans have uncorrected vision problems, ranging from refractive errors (near- or far-sightedness) to sight-threatening diseases such as glaucoma or age-related macular degeneration. Regular eye examinations can identify other health conditions, such as diabetes, that can affect the eyes even before the individual experiences noticeable symptoms.

Vision insurance generally covers the following basic services:

  • Annual eye examinations, including dilation
  • Eyeglass frames
  • Eyeglass lenses
  • Contact lenses
  • LASIK and PRK vision correction at discounted rates.

For those who don’t have employer-provided medical benefits, many individual medical plans offer vision coverage as an add-on. You can also buy a separate individual vision insurance policy. You can read more here about the various vision plans available.
