They say that your eyes are the “windows to your soul”. Well certainly, they are the most important sense you have. We perceive up to 80% of all impressions by means of our sight. With healthy eyes and good vision, you see the world and people around you, experience the joy of colors, read, be entertained, get yourself from one place to another, and countless other blessings that comes with having sight.

There are three most important reasons to consider Vision Insurance benefits for your employees: 

  1. Clear Vision and Good Eye Health – Scheduling regular eye exams helps your eye doctor identify vision correction needs, changes inside the eye, early stages of eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.   Vision corrections alone are very important for safety and productivity in the workplace.

    For children, routine eye exams are especially important. Children don’t realize what good vision is supposed to look like. Poor vision can impact their ability to develop correct motor skills, and adversely affect their performance in school.

  1. Overall Health – did you know that eye doctors, when examining your eyes, can often detect serious health conditions you may not realize you have? Medical problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, some cancers, autoimmune diseases, thyroid disorders and high cholesterol also manifest conditions within the eye. Routine eye exams can help to catch serious illnesses at an early stage.

  1. Cost Savings – Basic Vision Insurance plans may only provide benefits/cost savings for routine eye exams, and others provide more comprehensive coverage for eye glasses and contact lenses.   Some even provide discounts for LASIK vision correction.

Vision Insurance is typically an inexpensive, but important, employee benefit. When offered in addition to Dental Insurance, your employees know you have an interest in giving them the tools to have good health.
