I’ve worn glasses or contact lenses since I was seven years old. I realized I couldn’t read the board in class (chalkboard, not whiteboard like they have today). I still remember riding home with my new glasses and crying with happiness because the trees looked so beautiful. I had no idea what I’d been missing! The last time I bought new glasses I needed bifocals, so my glasses came with a lesson in how to use them when reading, working at a computer, and walking up and down stairs. They literally wouldn’t let me leave until I’d proved I could walk up and down a flight of stairs without falling, which struck me as funny, but extremely thoughtful.
Vision exams and corrective lenses are expensive, but let’s face it – they are a necessary expense. And VSP Vision Care can help you save money and keep your eyes healthy while still looking your best. In fact, you can save an average of $320 per year with VSP Vision Care insurance, and that’s nothing to sneeze at in today’s economy! Check out SeeMuchMore.com to see just how much you can save with their interactive savings calculator. Many families don’t have vision benefits, and consumer studies have shown that people using VSP Vision Care insurance pay substantially less for their glasses than those who don’t have coverage.
Insurance plans like VSP Vision Care provide you with a frame allowance and fully cover the cost of basic lenses (perfect for kids!) They also provide discounts on lens options including progressive lenses,Transitions® lenses, anti-reflective coating, scratch-resistant coating and UV protection. My personal favorite is the anti-reflective coating, which keeps glasses from showing glare in pictures. I know that sounds trivial, but after spending most of my life with a glare spot in every single picture taken of me it’s been wonderful having pictures in which I can actually see both my eyes! Here’s a picture from Halloween of me in my favorite glasses: they are progressive lenses with an anti-reflective coating, and I love them!
See how there’s glare on the glass I’m holding, but none on my glasses? That’s what I’m talking about 🙂 Everyone’s style is different (as I found when shopping for glasses with my thirteen-year-old son recently) so it’s comforting to know that you can use your VSP Vision Care insurance for anything from classic frames to the latest designer trend.
Probably not what I would have selected for him, but he’s crazy about them!
