How much is vision insurance?

Vision insurance makes it easier to budget for the cost of glasses and contacts. Your out of pocket expenses will depend on the provider and plan you choose. Guardian Direct vision plans start at $10 per month*.

Individual vision insurance and for seniors

For seniors aged 60 and beyond, age-related eye health problems can cause total vision loss. That’s why it’s important for seniors to get routine eye exams and to wear glasses, contacts, or bifocals as needed.

Medicare and vision insurance

While some Medicare Advantage plans offer health, vision, and dental insurance benefits, Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) only offers limited vision coverage that does not include most routine eye care. If you’re not satisfied with your vision coverage under Medicare, you can purchase affordable vision insurance online or over the phone.
