Why Vision Insurance is Important
Do you and your family have vision insurance? If not, you may be missing out on reducing your eye care expenses. In exchange for a monthly premium, an insurance plan picks up some of the costs. Today is National Insurance Awareness Day. If you’re debating on if you need vision insurance, we’ve got the pros and cons.
First of all, vision insurance is different from a vision discount plan. Vision discount plans cost less per year than insurance, but you may pay more for visits.
What Vision Insurance Pays For
- Eye exams & vision tests
- Eyeglass lenses
- Contact lenses
- Eyeglass frames
- Lens protection for your glasses
Some insurance plans have additional options for coverage like,
- Daily disposable contact lens coverage
- Discounts on Lasik
