Vision coverage is usually not an included benefit when purchasing health insurance and is often overlooked.
However, vision insurance is an important part of your overall health maintenance and can help you save money on routine checkups and vision correction (i.e. contacts, glasses, Lasik).
Additionally, eye examinations can help diagnose serious health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration. Early detection is the key to treating eye disease, and an annual eye examination plays a vital role in detecting a number of eye health conditions.
