The month of August is National Eye Exam Month, a month dedicated to the importance of eye health and safety. Vision insurance is designed to help you cover and budget for ongoing vision care expenses like routine eye exams, prescription glasses and contact lenses.
Are you looking for vision insurance, or eye insurance?
Vision insurance refers to a contract between a consumer and an insurance organization which provides vision care in return for a premium. In exchange for their premium payments, consumers usually receive eye examinations (given by doctors and clinics contracted with the insurance organization) and corrective eyewear. Exactly how much of the fees are covered varies according to the specifics of the plan.
Even if you have perfect vision, proper preventative eye care is an essential practice towards ensuring the health of your vision in the years to come. The most important step is receiving routine examinations from a qualified eye care professional. Individuals between the ages of 20 to 40 are recommended an exam every 5 years or so, provided no visual changes or injury has occurred. Individuals over the age of 40 should have an exam every 2 years or so.
Plan features and benefits will vary depending on the provider, but features typically discounted include:
· Eye examinations
· Surgical procedures - including Lasik procedures where available.
· Contact Lenses
· Non-prescription sunglasses
