You’ve probably heard the saying “eyes are the window to the soul,” but have you also heard that eyes are the window to your overall health?
Maintaining your eye health is about more than just the right prescription for glasses or contact lenses. Routine eye exams can detect signs of diabetes, cholesterol problems and even brain tumors. Taking advantage of your available vision benefits can help you keep your whole body healthy.
Vision care is one of the options available to federal employees and annuitants as part of your annual benefits enrollment. VSP® Vision Care is affordable, easy to sign up for and convenient to use. With an annual checkup and allowances for glasses and contacts, one visit to the eye doctor could be all you need.
Ten communities across the country made our list of the top eye-healthy cities for federal employees. Is your city one of them? These cities had the highest number of VSP members visit their eye doctor during 2014. That one visit ensures their vision health and overall well-being is accounted for.
You can help put your city in the Top 10 in 2015 with one easy step–enroll in VSP from November 9 – December 14 during Open Season! To find out more about your plan options or how to enroll, visit choosevsp.com.
