Forget Surprise Out-Of-Pocket Expenses with Vision Care Direct’s High-Quality and Affordable Vision Care Plans

Prescription eyewear has traditionally been associated with high out-of-pocket costs. The price of frames, lenses, and other extras adds up quickly, and you’re left with a bill that’s hard to even look at.

Thankfully, Vision Care Direct has reinvented the vision care plan industry. Our coverage options are simple, flexible, and affordable to provide you with the best value and biggest savings possible.

We were founded by practicing optometrists who understand patient needs, and have made it our mission to focus vision benefits back to where they belong – on you.

Two of our vision care plans include a frame allowance that helps you continue investing in your eye health while keeping more money in your pocket. The following breaks down how you can save on eyewear today.

What Is a Vision Care Plan Frame Allowance?

A frame allowance covers a portion of – if not all – the cost of new prescription glasses or contacts. Our eligible vision care plans come with a frame allowance, so if you select eyewear that’s the same or less than the amount, you’ll pay nothing out-of-pocket. If you choose eyewear that’s greater than the frame allowance, you’ll just pay the difference.

For example, if your frame allowance is $130, and you pick out a pair of fashionable frames that total to $150, you’ll only spend $20 to get the eyewear you love.

How You Benefit from a Frame Allowance

All our vision care plans are designed to help you avoid paying high out-of-pocket costs for your eye health. Too often people invest in traditional eye insurance and still end up with surprise expenses at the doctor’s office. Our plans aren’t riddled with confusing industry jargon, so you know exactly what you’re getting and for how much.

Our frame allowances cover the average cost of glasses or contacts, meaning you can be confident you have the right amount of coverage to get the eyewear you need.

All About Our Materials Only and Exam + Materials Vision Care Plans

A frame allowance is included in both our Materials Only and Exam + Materials vision care plans. To help you determine what plan is best for you, we’ve broken down what you get with each.

  • Materials Only: This vision care plan is completely dedicated to your eyewear needs. Whether you need glasses for just you or the entire family, you can shop the latest trends with advanced ophthalmic lenses, including standard single-vision, bifocals, and trifocals. Your frame allowance can also be put toward contact lenses.
  • Exam + Materials: With all the same eyewear benefits of our Materials Only vision care plan, our Exam + Materials option also covers comprehensive eye exams with an in-network provider. This includes the refraction and dilation of your pupils when necessary. Routine exams have proven to not only be important to your eye health but your overall health as well by detecting underlying medical issues, like diabetes and high cholesterol.

If you’re someone who doesn’t need eyewear, but you still want to be proactive about your eye health, we offer an Exam Only vision care plan for just this purpose.

Save Even More When You See a VCD PLUS Provider

You can keep even more money in your pocket by visiting a VCD PLUS provider. These providers have partnered with us to enhance the normal benefits that all VCD members receive.

By seeing a VCD PLUS provider, you can look forward to a complete eyewear option that – on top of frames and lenses – includes special add-ons like an anti-reflection coating, scratch-resistant coating, and UV protection. If you also happen to be a multifocal wearer, you can say goodbye to the visible lines of bifocals and trifocals and get standard digital progressive lenses at no additional charge.

To take advantage of these savings, look for the VCD PLUS logo when searching for optometrists near you on our website.
