Why Get Vision Insurance
Eye disease can cause permanent damage if not addressed quickly; therefore, regular eye appointments are highly recommended for most adults and children. With vision insurance, your visits to the eye doctor will be less expensive on average, and the providers you have access to are likely to expand as well.
Eye Care Costs
Without eye insurance, you may have to pay as much as $200 for a new patient eye exam. Routine eye exams may cost a bit less, but a basic eye insurance package will likely allow you to save significantly in the long-term, with premiums ranging anywhere from $10 to $30 a month. At $16 a month, you would be paying $192 annually to uphold your policy. At that rate, purchasing glasses or contact lenses and services like eye exams will cost much less for an insured consumer.
When Not To Get Eye Insurance
We recommend that you always keep eye insurance, just to be safe, but there are some instances where it may not be necessary. If you don’t need any glasses or other corrective treatment, eye insurance may not be the best choice.
