Open Your Eyes to Individual Vision Care That’s Simple, Flexible, and Affordable
When it comes to caring for your eyes, you should have a vision services plan that’s simple, affordable, and easy to understand. But unfortunately, traditional vision care insurance is often the exact opposite.
The good news is that Vision Care Direct is reinventing the vision insurance industry and putting the focus back on where it belongs – you. Our insurance alternative just makes sense, providing you with flexible coverage options at the best value.
Let’s take a closer look at our top reasons you should consider joining Vision Care Direct.
Reason 1: Your Eyes Deserve It
Good eye care will promote good eye health. Many people think their sight is fine and go several years without getting a proper eye exam, exponentially increasing their risk of vision loss.
Getting your eyes checked on a routine basis is critical to preventing future problems. A doctor will be able to identify changes to your vision, determine any correction needs, and catch the early onset of diseases, like glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
Reason 2: Vision Services Can Benefit Your Overall Health
Vision services do as much good for the rest of your body as they do your eyes. A comprehensive eye exam can help detect other, larger health issues that may have otherwise gone unnoticed.
Aside from evaluating your vision, an optometrist may be able to spot medical problems related to diabetes, high blood pressure, autoimmune disorders, and even some cancers.
Reason 3: Your Wallet Will Thank You
Our vision services plans are affordable and will help you avoid high out-of-pocket costs at the doctor’s office. In addition to coverage for comprehensive eye exams, we also provide options with a frame allowance, which means you can get the eyewear you need without breaking the bank.
Bonus: When you visit a VCD PLUS provider, you’ll also get the added benefit of lens add-ons – anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings and UV protection – included with any frame and lens type, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars in the long run.
Reason 4: There’s a Vision Services Plan for Everyone
Whether you need eye care, eyewear, or both, we have a plan for you. We have three individual vision care options to suit all your needs – no matter if you’re looking for coverage for just you or the whole family. You’ll choose from:
- An Exam Only Plan, which covers comprehensive eye exams including the refraction and dilation of your pupils when indicated.
- A Materials Only Plan, which gives you a frame allowance to cover the cost of glasses with single-vision, progressive, or multifocal lenses, or the option to put that allowance toward contact lenses.
- An Exam + Materials Plan, which includes all the benefits of the above two plans combined.
Reason 5: You’ll Get Easy Access to Your Member Benefits
After you’re signed up for one of our vision services plans, we make reviewing your member benefits simpler than ever. Whatever plan you choose, you’ll have your own VCD account, where you’ll be able to view your plan details, see your past visits, find a doctor, and more.
We think we can all agree that’s better than rifling through medical records and checking individual provider sites to see if they’re in-network.
Reason 6: A Doctor Is Only a Message Away
Sometimes you need a doctor’s opinion, but it doesn’t require a full appointment. At Vision Care Direct, we have optometrists available to help. You’ll send your message using our “Ask a Doctor” contact form and get a response via call, text, or email, depending on your preference, as soon as possible.
