You rely on your eyes to complete almost all tasks in your daily life. Watching television, reading a book or even driving to work would be difficult without good vision. Most health care plans don’t cover comprehensive vision care. Vision insurance is an optional health policy that entitles you to specific eye care and eyewear benefits, defined in the policy. Vision insurance covers eye exams, glasses, and contacts (just the basics!) and is typically very inexpensive.
