Vision Insurance

Your Eyes Are A Window To Your Health

Shakespeare once said, “The eyes are the window to the soul.” He may not have realized it, but they are also a window to your overall health. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, an eye exam can catch at least 20 different health problems from aneurysms and brain tumors to heart disease or stroke. Not only that, but many parents who thought their children had learning issues have come to find out that they simply needed to correct their vision. It’s tougher to comprehend the assignment when you can’t see the blackboard (or whiteboard in most schools today).

The Vision Council has stated that in 2022, 79 percent of adults in the United States – 204 million people – use some form of vision correction including eyeglasses, prescription sunglasses, reading glasses, or contact lenses. In short, eye exams are important to virtually everyone.

Vision Insurance Is Affordable

The good news is that they can be very inexpensive. Because of this, in addition to individuals and families on the lookout for affordable vision plans, businesses of all shapes and sizes are including vision coverage as an employee benefit.

BeneTrend Partners can help a company find the ideal group plan. One client has employees paying $1.41 per week for vision coverage and getting a $10 eye exam once a year with a prescription co-pay of $25 for glasses. Most plans will give you an allowance of between $100 to $200 to go toward your contacts or frames.

Vision plans are affordable in part because, like dental, they emphasize preventive care. In other words, get your eye exam regularly so problems can be corrected promptly before they get worse.

One of our clients, utilizing her eye insurance, got her routine eye exam and glasses. The eye exam caught swelling in her optic nerves. Because of that, she went to a neuro-ophthalmalogist and was diagnosed with Ideopathic Intracranial Hypertension. Her condition, left untreated, would likely have resulted in blindness. That eye exam kept her from going blind. The exam was paid for through her employer’s group insurance, which was supplied by BeneTrend Partners.

A Note on Eyewear

Education is also important when it comes to buying glasses. Once you get that prescription and lenses at a great price, you can avoid spending a small fortune on designer frames at the eye doctor’s office by getting them online at a wholesale price. There are literally thousands of options out there. BeneTrend always steers clients to affordable options.
