What is Vision Insurance?
Vision insurance - aka "eye insurance" or "vision plan" or even "vision discount plans" are all types of vision benefits that cover all, or part of a routine eye exam (the type of eye exam that is a check up which does not include management of medical eye problems like glaucoma, cataracts, corneal abrasions, strabismus, amblyopia, convergence insufficiency, eye tracking problems, diabetes or even eye allergies or pink eye. All your visits for these types of problems are billed to medical insurance carriers like Medicaid, Medicare, BCBS and Aetna).
A routine exam is designed for our optometrist to check for eyeglasses prescriptions, contact lens prescriptions, and to monitor eye health, often with dilation eye drops, but it is not designed for appointments to manage those medical eye problems listed above.
