EyeMed is America’s leading vision provider, serving 46 million members. EyeMed members can choose from 87,500 eye care providers nationwide to benefit from eye care and eyeglasses, according to the company’s website.
How much money can you save with EyeMed?
EyeMed Vision Care insurance offers significant discounts on annual eye exams, eyeglasses and contact lenses.
EyeMed members can save up to 73% compared to comprehensive eye exams and eyeglasses not covered by eye insurance. (Actual amount will vary depending on EyeMed plan and type of frames, frames and special features selected.)
EyeMed eye protection insurance is like a gift card that gives you premium eyewear at a lower price.
EyeMed members offer significant discounts on annual exams and eyeglass basic sets, as well as other savings when using in-network EyeMed providers, including:
- 40% Off Extra Glasses After Using Initial Offer
- 20% discount on items not covered by insurance, including over-the-counter sunglasses
- 20% off your frame balance after using the initial offer
You can also enjoy discounts on contact lenses, depending on the type of EyeMed vision care plan you choose.
Additionally, you may qualify for EyeMed discounts for LASIK and PRK vision correction surgeries if your surgery is performed by a refractive surgeon on the American Laser Network (owned and operated by LCA-Vision).
How Much Does EyeMed Eye Care Cost?
EyeMed Vision Care offers a variety of vision plans that offer different levels of benefits. Costs start at $5 per month for individual plans and $30 per month for family plans.
Where can I get EyeMed?
EyeMed Vision Care Plans are often offered as part of an overall employer-provided coverage package. Check with your Human Resources department if EyeMed is available in your workplace.
Where can I find EyeMed providers?
According to the company, more than 44,000 independent and retail affiliated eye doctors are part of the EyeMed network. EyeMed providers include optometrists affiliated with LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, JCPenney Optical, Sears Optical, and Target Optical.
Can I go to an out-of-network provider?
You can do it, but it will cost less than looking at an in-network EyeMed provider.
Additionally, if you use an out-of-network provider, you will need to pay for service hours and submit a claim form to EyeMed for a refund. If you have an in-network provider, EyeMed takes care of all the paperwork.
What’s the best way to use EyeMed Vision Care benefits?
Eye care is important, and cheap glasses aren’t cheap. Eye exams cannot cover the full cost of eye exams, eyeglasses and contact lenses. Especially if you want the best glasses.
With the benefits of EyeMed Vision Care, you don’t have to compromise when choosing eyeglasses, especially lenses for eyeglasses.
Premium spectacle lens features such as anti-reflective coatings, photochromic lenses and the latest progressive lenses can give you sharper, more comfortable vision than standard plastic lenses.
Without EyeMed vision insurance, the cost of these products could impact your budget.
In essence, the EyeMed plan works like a gift card. You can make the best eyeglass lenses and frames much cheaper. With EyeMed Vision Care, you don’t have to buy second-class glasses with basic or unnamed or unfamiliar “private brand” lenses. EyeMed helps you buy luxury brands for the cleanest and most comfortable vision possible.
While vision insurance doesn’t offer 100% coverage, the valuable benefits of the EyeMed plan and gift card features can help you get the best eyewear brands at an affordable price.
What happens if I don’t have EyeMed insurance?
If you are not an EyeMed Vision Care member, you may be eligible for other vision insurance benefits at work managed by other vision benefit companies. EyeMed’s biggest competitor is a company called VSP Vision C
