Driving to work, reading a news article and watching television are likely activities you perform every day. Your ability to easily do all these and more, however, depends on your vision and eye health. Routine eye exams will help maintain your vision as well as detect various eye problems and concerns about your overall health. Obtaining vision insurance is a way to make sure you can continue enjoying good health as well as the sights around you.
Did you know nearly 70 percent of Americans use some type of corrective lenses? A visit with an eye doctor can determine whether you need corrective lenses and make sure you are getting the proper correction.
Regular eye exams also ensure eye health, checking for conditions that can lead to vision loss. And eye doctors can also identify other health risks such as diabetes, high cholesterol, heart attack or stroke and refer you for follow up before these conditions become critical, saving you both money and your health. For children, the early detection of vision problems can contribute greatly to their success at school.
With the average pair of eyeglasses costing nearly $250, vision insurance is a very affordable coverage and much less expensive than you might imagine. Most vision plans provide coverage for basic care and eyewear, including annual eye exams, frames, lenses and contact lenses.
There are two types of Vision coverage plans. The first is regular insurance coverage. The amount of coverage will vary based on whether you are using an in- or out-of-network eye doctor. Typically you pay a portion of your eye care cost via a deductible or co-payment. The second type of coverage is a discount vision plan. With this option you can reduce vision costs without regular insurance coverage. You pay for all your vision care, but at a reduced rate with doctors in your network.
