The process of enrolling in benefits during open enrollment may seem daunting, but vision care is typically one of the easier benefits to enroll in, and will provide you with peace of mind knowing that you have the coverage you need to keep your eyes healthy. As a glasses wearer for eight years now, I can tell you that access to eye exams and stylish eyewear is a must for me! And I’m not alone—VSP provides vision coverage to nearly 80 million members in the U.S.
In addition to getting an updated prescription, comprehensive eye exams are a noninvasive way to check for eye diseases and signs of serious health conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes that might otherwise go unnoticed until they become more serious problems.
