Even though your eyes are a pretty important part of your body, most standard health insurance plans don’t cover them either. This can be a problem if you don’t get routine exams to check your eye health or if you need glasses or contacts.
Fortunately, vision insurance plans – like dental insurance plans – are pretty affordable when purchased on the open market or obtained as a workplace benefit.
If you need corrective care, you’ll want to shop for a plan that covers glasses or contacts to help you defray these costs. Some plans even provide discounts or coverage for laser eye treatment so you can make a permanent correction to your vision.
