Your eyes are important. Without your vision, you would be…..blind. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that vision insurance only covers glasses. There are plenty of conditions you should be insured against. But, even if you never have a horrible disease, your vision coverage will provide you with eye prescriptions like glasses or contact lenses helping to reduce the costs you will have to endure yourself. In addition, you will have the security which regular examinations will provide.
Being regularly screened for things like glaucoma can increase the chances for early detection of various conditions which in turn can reduce the severity of problems those conditions might cause. Vision insurance is one of those things that many people think of as a luxury, but some fortunate souls are saved from blindness as a result of the increased medical attention they receive due to having more frequent visits.
When you visit an optometrist, you’ll find the environment relaxing and peaceful. Usually their office will have carpet and comfortable furniture. After completing your initial paperwork you’ll sit in a darkened room and read eye charts to determine you current vision level. When you look through the optometry machine it with the assistance of it’s human operator will try several combinations of lenses until the perfect solution is found for you. You will also be checked for an astigmatism which means a cornea that is not perfectly shaped. Astigmatisms cause terrible eye strain that over the counter reading glasses cannot correct.
Your eyes are something you don’t want to take a chance with. Take care of them, and they’ll take care of you. This way, you can keep on seeing the world through rose colored glasses. Consider some of your vision insurance options. There are many fine companies that want your business. I’ll be happy to show you a few.
