What Can You Get With Your Vision Insurance? For many, the struggle with having yearly vision insurance benefits is knowing what services the benefits include. Do you know what is included in your insurance and what it can get for you? This information is the first step towards getting the most out of your plan.

What you are entitled to depends on the plan you have.
As a start, with most policies your vision insurance plan entitles you to an annual comprehensive eye examination. Beyond this it can vary. Some plans also cover a discount or allowance toward eyewear or contact lenses each year. It is also possible that your kids are covered under your policy. It is essential that you know exactly what your yearly vision insurance benefits are and take full advantage of them before they expire. The Importance of a Yearly Eye Exam Taking advantage of your yearly vision insurance benefits is not only necessary to avoid losing money, it is also important to ensure your eye health. A yearly eye exam is part of your preventative health care. There are many eye problems, conditions and diseases that may not have noticeable symptoms. It is only through a comprehensive eye exam that such problems will be detected early enough and given the right treatment to prevent further complications and vision loss. Further, individuals that wear contact lenses or corrective eyewear need annual eye exams to determine if there have been changes that will require new lenses or eye treatments.
Comprehensive eye exams differ significantly from vision screenings. During an eye exam, the doctor will look for eye muscle imbalance, eye diseases and vision disorders. It is a necessity for both children and adults. Don’t wait until your vision becomes blurred to schedule an eye exam.
In addition to issues directly related to your eyes, a comprehensive eye exam will also allow your doctor to look for and detect other serious health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure or brain tumors. An eye exam is a potential life-safer!
