As a person who wears glasses it should have occurred to me that I need to pay more attention to my children’s vision care than I have. I was content thinking that the eye chart reading they were doing during their annual well-check visit with our pediatrician was enough. It was not. Major Parent Fail. I cannot tell you how bad I felt when my son went for his physical this summer and could barely read anything on the eye chart! After I finished beating myself up, we made an appointment to get him some glasses!
As we looked at the costs involved in getting his eyewear, I started to hyperventilate a little over some of the prices. Glasses and exams can get a little spendy. But you can offset a lot of those costs by enrolling in VSP Vision Care if your company offers it as part of your benefits package. VSP Vision Care is the preferred provider of many employers for vision coverage for employees and their families.
While it might seem like an unnecessary expense on the surface, vision insurance is a pretty important part of any family’s health care plan for many reasons, not the least of which is cost savings. You may not wear glasses, but chances are pretty good that you or someone in your family will need an eye exam or corrective lenses at some point in the near future. When you are faced with paying these expenses out of pocket, you start to see where vision coverage can help. Check out this video to see how fast the savings can add up:
Aside from the cost of maintaining your family’s vision health, it’s important to know you are getting good care. VSP Vision Care works with providers who meet the highest credentialing requirements in the industry. Why is that important? Well, a yearly visit with your eye doctor can reveal a lot about not only your eye health, but your physical health too. A highly trained eye doctor will conduct a comprehensive eye exam that will uncover any changes in your vision and also identify any possible physical issues like high cholesterol, MS and a host of other ailments. Enrolling in VSP will ensure you get the best eye care available and help you make eye health part of your family’s overall health and fitness routine.
Don’t make the same mistake I did by letting an annual eye chart reading take the place of annual eye exams. 80% of what we learn is through our eyes and undiagnosed changes in eyesight account for many learning issues in children. By enrolling in VSP Vision care, parents are providing the care and tools necessary to ensure that their children can “learn and experience life clearly.”
Not sure if your company works with VSP Vision Care? Or do you need help enrolling? Go to their website at SeeMuchMore.com to get more information about how you can get coverage for your family. If you are self-employed or your employer doesn’t offer vision care, don’t despair! VSP Vision Care offers plans for individuals and families at affordable rates.
