What is vision insurance?
Vision insurance provides coverage and savings on the cost of an annual eye exam, prescription eyewear and lenses, contact lenses, and other eye-related services.
What can vision insurance do for me?
You deserve the best vision coverage at the lowest out-of-pocket costs—and VSP® Vision Care delivers. With VSP, you’ll get coverage for the things you care about most:
Personalized eye care for you and your family
An annual eye exam that allows your eye care provider to check the health of your eyes and for signs of other health conditions
A wide selection of affordable and stylish eyewear you’ll love
Savings on exams, services, and eyewear—meaning more money in your pocket
What does VSP vision insurance cover?
Everyone needs an annual eye exam, and most families have at least one member who needs glasses or contacts. In addition to a comprehensive eye exam, VSP covers lenses and lens enhancements with low copays or savings on standard pricing. Some plans also cover sunglasses.
VSP providers take the time to get to know your eyes and deliver the best possible care. Many have evening, weekend, and early morning office hours to fit your busy schedule. Visit vsp.com to find a conveniently located VSP provider.
Plus, using your VSP benefit is easy. There are no claims to file when you see a VSP provider.
