Routine eye exams can reveal treatable conditions like glaucoma (too-high pressure in your eye that can permanently damage your sight) and chronic or life-threatening conditions like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, or even cancer.

Fortunately, you and your enrolled family members are eligible for free annual eye exams when you visit an EyeMed network provider. EyeMed administers our vision plan.

The plan also provides a one-time Lasik corrective eye surgery benefit for all covered individuals.

You and your enrolled family members age 19 and over are eligible for vision benefits once per calendar year. Enrolled children ages 18 and under are not subject to the eye exam frequency limit.

You can visit any vision care provider you’d like. However, when you visit an EyeMed network provider, you’ll receive greater benefits and discounts. Refer to the chart below for Plan highlights. See the SPD and Summaries of Material Modifications.
