We’re Not Like Vision Insurance Providers. We’re Better.

You have a lot of options for vision coverage. However, finding a plan that fits your eye care needs has traditionally been easier said than done.

For years, vision insurance providers have designed policies with limited protections. Plans are riddled with complex terminology and fine print, so it’s difficult to know exactly what you’re covered for and what you’re not. This has only left patients with high out-of-pocket expenses when visiting an eye doctor.

The good news is that Vision Care Direct is reinventing the industry and offering benefits that focus on what matters: you. Our plans are simple, flexible, and affordable, so you can get quality eye care services without breaking the bank.

But how is this possible? And where can you enroll? We answer these questions and more to help you make an informed decision on the best vision care plan for you.

What Do Vision Care Direct Plans Cover?

We offer multiple vision care plan options, providing you with enough variety to get the coverage you need without overcomplicating the process. Depending on your preferences, our benefits include:

  • Coverage for comprehensive eye exams, including the refraction and dilation of pupils.
  • A frame allowance for a complete pair of glasses or contact lenses.
  • Single-vision, bifocal, trifocal, and even progressive spectacle lenses, depending on your provider.
  • Both exam and materials coverage.

You can also get reimbursed for LASIK as a Vision Care Direct member. Many traditional vision insurance providers won’t cover the surgery, but as long as you have copies of itemized receipts and your Vision Care Direct Member ID, you can request to utilize your benefits.

Do I Really Need a Vision Care Plan If I Have Health Insurance?

It’s true that both health insurance and a vision care plan can be used at your eye doctor’s office, but they each serve a different purpose. Health insurance generally covers the costs of any medical eye issues, like glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. However, it doesn’t do much good for preventative vision care.

Vision care plans make it possible to get routine eye exams and premium eyewear for a fraction of the price. With Vision Care Direct benefits, you’ll have access to the nation’s top providers, so you can keep your eyes healthy and catch problems before they progress.

Who Can I Add to My Vision Care Plan?

The simple answer: anyone who’s financially dependent on you, like your spouse or children. Whether you’re looking for a vision care plan for just you or a family of 10, we have customized solutions to suit everyone. With coverage for both eye care and eyewear, we ensure you get the right levels of protection at an unbeatable value.

How Can I Find An Eye Doctor Near Me?

Our vision care plans are backed by a network of optometry professionals across multiple states. Use our “Find a Provider” tool to search for an eye doctor in your area. From here, you can access contact information, learn about the location’s practicing optometrists, and explore their products and services.

If you choose to visit an out-of-network doctor for an eye exam or glasses, you can get reimbursed through your vision care plan. However, it’s important to note that your benefits are significantly enhanced when you see a Vision Care Direct provider.

Who Are VCD PLUS Providers?

If you’ve browsed our site at all, you’ve probably seen mention of “VCD PLUS.” But what does that mean? Opting to visit a VCD PLUS provider, which happens to be the majority of Vision Care Direct providers, allows you to take advantage of all your same benefits, plus more.

You’ll save a lot on eyewear, in particular. Shop a complete pair of glasses for one low price. That includes the latest fashionable frames, high-definition ophthalmic lenses (single-vision, bifocal, trifocal, or digital progressive), and add-ons like an anti-reflection coating, scratch-resistant coating, and UV protection.

Who Else Does Vision Care Direct Serve?

We believe in making quality eye care accessible. That’s why we’ve chosen to partner with more than individuals and families. We also serve:

  • Employers who want to attract and retain top talent.
  • Insurance brokers who are interested in growing their client base.
  • Providers who are looking for a new way to add value to their patients’ experiences.

How Can I Enroll in a Vision Care Plan?

Say goodbye to hard-to-understand policies from traditional vision insurance providers and hello to benefits that just make sense. Enrolling in a vision care plan is simple. Get started online.

After you become a Vision Care Direct member, you can create an online account, so all your plan information is right at your fingertips. Review your coverage details, see a record of past doctor visits, find a provider, and more when you log in.
