Is Vision Insurance Worth It?

Clear vision can be essential for everyday activities for you and your family and vision insurance can help. Regular eye exams are an important part of finding eye diseases early and preserving your vision.1 Having regular check-ups can help detect conditions such as diabetes2 and high blood pressure3 before they become more serious. Caring for your vision can lead to a better quality of life, including fewer headaches, better performance at school, less computer eye strain, more effectiveness at work, and better performance in sports.4 In addition, vision insurance can be a smart budgeting tool to help you save on annual eye exams, frames and lenses.

As many as 16 million people in the United States have undiagnosed or uncorrected "refractive" errors in their vision that could be fixed with eyeglasses, contact lenses or surgery.5 In many cases, vision insurance may cover the costs associated with those issues.
