It’s that time of year again! Have you used all of your remaining vision insurance benefits?

What Is Vision Insurance?

Whether you received your vision insurance through an employer or you enrolled in a plan on your own, you may be curious how it works. Each plan differs based on your insurance provider and your level of coverage, but most plans have the same basic function.

Vision insurance plans are health and wellness plans designed to lower the out-of-pocket cost of routine eye care. This often includes eye exams and prescription eyewear. Some plans even offer discounted rates on vision correction surgery. Each provider has a wide range of benefits, so be sure to speak with your employer or insurance provider to understand what benefits are available to you.

Check out the video below to see why you should take advantage of the comprehensive eye exams included in your insurance plan:

Vision Insurance Differs From Other Insurance Policies

Most vision insurance policies differ from other major medical policies. For instance, many regular health insurance policies provide unlimited benefits after you pay a certain co-pay or meet a predetermined deductible. Vision insurance plans, however, are known as discount or wellness benefit plans that offer specific benefits and discounts when you pay an annual insurance premium.

Because of this key difference, it’s important you get the most out of your vision insurance each year! Many plans offer significant discounts on comprehensive eye exams, eyeglass frames, eyeglass and contact lenses, and lens enhancements such as anti-reflective coatings. Since these benefits are discounts based on an annual premium, they don’t roll over to the next year if left unused—meaning you’d lose out on free or drastically discounted services.

Amazing office, from staff to the doctor all were exactly what I wanted And needed. My kids thought they were great as well which is important to me. They fit me in for an appointment last minute and stayed late when it ran over. They helped me figure out a way to pay my bill that I could afford. Every step they were there for me, friendly and smiling. I'd recommend this office without reservation to anyone seeking quality eye care! Thank you all for being so wonderful, I truly appreciate it.

I would give this business no stars if it were possible. I decided to support a small town business and skip Walmart. Well, I'm in Walmart now anyway.

When I entered this business both the employees at the desk gave me a puzzled look. I was greeted cheerfully and offered assistance. I only want to get the screws on my son's glasses tightened. I informed the employees that we were here for adjustments. A male employee asked me what was wrong with the glasses. Huh?!

In the not so distant past when you entered an eyeglass store asking for adjustments an employee would ask you to put on your glasses, check them, and proceed to tighten screws, clean them, and etc. I was puzzled at this point, and I showed him the loose sides. I was asked if I was a patient. When I answered no, I was given a form to fill out and told that I would have to pay $10. They weren't even sure if it would be $10.

I immediately informed the employees that I would go somewhere where the adjustments are free i.e. ANY other eyeglass place (Pearl, Lens Crafters, Walmart, Macys, For Eyes). He informed me that usually the warranty is handled by wherever you purchased the glasses and that EVERY place is different. No it isn't. I've been doing this since the late '80s/early '90s. Epic fail Levin Optical.

We went to Walmart (RIP Small Town USA) and got the screws in the arms tightened and the glasses thoroughly cleaned. I really wanted to start a relationship with this place. Now my son wants to purchase his new pair of glasses from Walmart. Ugh!
