What Is Vision Insurance?
There are lots of types of insurance you hope you’ll never need, from life insurance to auto insurance. However, vision insurance is something you’ll want to use because it allows you to get glasses, eye exams and other vision treatments far more affordably than you’d get on your own.
All you do is pay a low monthly premium, and you’ll get a range of benefits depending on your plan. Our basic vision care plans are surprisingly affordable, and you can add on a spouse, domestic partner or child for a slightly lower rate than the individual rate to get affordable care for the whole family.
Our Vision Insurance Coverage
The specific coverage you’ll get depends on the plan you choose, but some of the things covered by many of our policies include:
- Basic preventive care, such as vision tests and eye exams
- Contact lenses
- Eyeglass lenses
- Eyeglass frames
- Lens protection
- Discounts on corrective eye surgery
Why You Need Vision Insurance From Burton & Company
Vision insurance isn’t viewed with the same sense of urgency as health insurance by some people, but there are some compelling reasons eye care deserves to be a priority for you and your family.
Eye Health Is Linked To General Health
Even with perfect vision, it’s not a good idea to skip regular eye exams because they can detect hidden medical problems, such as high blood pressure. In addition, people with certain conditions, such as diabetes, need to stay on top of regular eye exams because it can affect their vision.
Poor Vision Can Be Dangerous
Many people with poor eyesight have become so used to their vision that they do not realize there is a problem. Unfortunately, it can be dangerous to have poor vision in many situations. For example, good vision is essential for driving, particularly at night. Depending on your job, not being able to see clearly could put you or those you work with in danger.
Eye Strain Is Becoming More Common
As we depend more and more on screens in our everyday lives as well as our work lives, eye strain is becoming increasingly common. This can cause unpleasant symptoms such as back and neck soreness, light sensitivity and headaches, all of which can make it difficult to concentrate on your daily work.
Screens Are Causing Vision Problems For Children
A family vision plan from Burton & Company is a great way to stay on top of your children’s eye health at a time when so many kids are experiencing vision problems as a result of more time spent using devices with screens and less time spent outdoors. Eye fatigue, irritated eyes, nearsightedness and a loss of focus and flexibility are all issues eye doctors are seeing more of thanks to our modern lifestyle.
