What is vision insurance?

Vision insurance is a way to help cover expenses incurred for eye care services from eye care professionals such as optometrists and ophthalmologists. Regular eye exams can offer more than just measuring your eye sight!  They can identify serious eye diseases early, allowing time for treatment.  Most people don't realize that eye exams can also reveal the early signs of serious illnesses like diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.

Having vision insurance can help you pay for:

  • Eye exams
  • Eyeglasses
  • Contact lenses
  • Eye surgeries
  • Vision correction


Why do I need it?

It's important to budget for regular eye exams.  By doing so, your doctor could identify and treat eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.  Having vision insurance can help you improve your health with routine eye exams while saving you money on your eye care needs.
