VISION
 

 Vision care coverage promotes:

  • Greater productivity
  • Employees who see well can do their best work better and more efficiently
  • Employee morale and retention
A recent study reported in Business and Health magazine showed vision coverage is such a popular benefit that nearly two-thirds of respondents would trade a vacation day for and employer-paid vision care plan. Vision coverage can also help employee relations when there are changes to a benefits program.

Consider the following statistics:

  • More than 77 million, or nearly 60 percent, of all adults in the U.S. wear some form of prescriptive lenses, according to the Vision Council of America.
     
  • Sight was ranked as the most important of the five senses by 80 percent of Americans surveyed, noted an article in the November/December, 1996 issue of Health Care Innovations.
     
  • The Department of Health and Human Services lists eye problems as the third leading chronic condition restricting activity and efficiency in our nation.

As you can see, vision care is a much-needed, popular and valuable benefit. And unlike major medical and dental coverage, vision coverage is an extremely affordable benefit that generally represents a small percent of a total benefits budget.

There are many vision care providers who offer various styles of plans. The major characteristics of the plans are as follows:

  • Exams:
  • Generally once every 12 months
     
  • Frames:
  • Option of every 12 or 24 months
     
  • Lenses:
  • Option of every 12 or 24 months
