It’s open enrollment! What does that mean? It means you can enroll for health care, dental care and vision care insurance! If you haven’t given it a second thought, I want to remind you about vision care. Even if your basic medical insurance is taken care of, you should have vision insurance. It will save you a lot of money for those eye exams you should be getting and the potential cost of eye glasses for your family.
There are 4 great reason to enroll in Vision Care Insurance:
- I learned in my interview with Dr. Roger Phelps of OjaiEyes Optometry how important a yearly eye exam is even if you feel you have great vision! A thorough eye exam can detect signs of eye-related and other health issues! Having your eyes checked on a regular basis gives a base-line report of your health, if any changes occur, the optometrist can make a note of it and if needed, recommend further investigation with your family doctor.
- The latest eyewear designs are available from name brands at your doctor’s office. Please don’t buy reading glasses from the drugstore…you could be damaging your eyes further by wearing the wrong prescriptions. Get your eyes tested then pick a pair of frames as fabulous as you are!
- Not only should you be getting regular eye exams, so should your children! Babies as young as 6 months old should have their eyes examined and every year after! This was most surprising to me when I spoke with Dr. Phelps! Our endocrinologist does not recommend eye exams for my daughter with Type 1 Diabetes until age 12 or 13. Dr. Phelps was strongly opposed to this idea. He noted that it’s important to establish a file so that if any changes do occur, they can be caught! This is true for all people, regardless of their current medical history.
- Savings…with VSP Vision Care. VSP promises that savings are built right into your plan, which means you’ll experience great overall value on services, like: eye exams from the nation’s top eye doctors, prescription glasses and sunglasses, lens options, like anti-reflective coating, Transitions® lenses, and progressive lenses, contact lenses and your fitting and evaluation exam and laser vision correction. That’s a long list of benefits!

“I didn’t know how bad my teenage son’s sight was until we walked out of the VSP doctor’s office with his new glasses. My son said “Oh wow, I didn’t realize trees had individual leaves.” I don’t know how long his vision has been like this, but thank you, VSP, for allowing my son to see the real world.” ~Lynette A.
