Potentially high costs of regular eye examinations and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. You might be able to defray at least some of these costs by looking into acquiring vision insurance for yourself or better understanding the plan your company already provides.
First, you must understand that vision insurance only supplements regular health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injury or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine, preventive eye care such as eye exams, eyewear, and other services at a reduced cost.
