While you are in the midst of your dental, physical, and other checkups, you should also be checking your vision. Here is a couple reasons why vision insurance is important:
Vision wellness –Vision insurance promotes good health. Eye exams are considered preventive care and plans typically cover most, if not all, of the exam cost. Scheduling regular exams helps your eye doctor identify vision correction needs, changes inside the eye and early stages of eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
Overall health – During an eye exam, doctors often detect serious medical problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, some cancers, autoimmune diseases, thyroid issues and high cholesterol. Catching these illnesses at an early stage may reduce medical treatment costs.
Cost savings – Based on your insurance plan it may cover eye exams, contacts, & glasses. Even if the plan does not cover the whole cos it will most likely cover the majority of the cost. If you need LASIK surgery, check your plan to see how much it covers.
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.
