Eye care can be pretty expensive even if you get the bare minimum. Have you seen how pricey frames are? Ouch. But today’s post should help ease that pain a bit, and there’s a great giveaway, so keep reading!
Vision care, like dental insurance, is often separate from your medical coverage but a necessary expense for almost everyone. You may not wear glasses now, but you will, and if you have a family you should make sure your kids are covered.
With open enrollment coming up for many employees you should look into what your employer offers and consider vision care. If you’re self-employed or your employer doesn’t offer vision care VSP Vision Care is available for purchase independently or you can share information about VSP with your employer.
How much does it really save?
VSP Vision Care providers offer eye exams and designer frames, contacts, and special options like mall stores offer at a much lower cost. Check out this brief video on how fast those savings can add up:
Keep in mind that vision care through your employer is pre-tax dollars so the savings are even bigger!
What would a typical family save?
For families the cost savings can add up fast. Say you’re the typical family–Mom wears RX glasses and sunglasses for driving, Dad wears glasses for reading, Son who wears glasses (6), Daughter who doesn’t wear glasses (3). All 4 family members will get eye exams this year (for recommended exam time for kids see here), and 3 will get glasses, while Mom gets two pairs. They could easily spend $2,000 and that’s not even with nice frames or upgrades!
With VSP Vision Care our pretend family would save well over $1,200! Now that’s money in the bank.
And now the fun partâ€¦â€¦
