THROUGH YOUR OWN EYES
Protect your eyes from the many changes to come. Not just from a change in your eyeglass prescription, but from cataracts. Cataracts is the most common reason for blindness in the entire world.
If you wear prescription glasses or contacts, an annual review is necessary to evaluate your eyesight for 20/20 vision. However, everyone needs an annual eye exam. It can save your life.
There are so many health issues that can be discovered through a routine eye exam. You have probably heard of cataracts and glaucoma, but did you know that brain tumors and lung cancers have been diagnosed through an eye exam? It's true. One of the biggest mistruths about vision coverage, you don't need it if you don't wear glasses.
A vision policy typically covers a routine eye exam every year in exchange for a copay. It provides access to prescription glasses or contacts either through benefits or significant discounts through their network. Services are often provided through a network of providers. If you purchase a Medicare Advantage plan, you can frequently buy a vision rider to add the vision policy to your plan.
