Overview

Coverage provided under vision plans can range from routine eye exams, framing and fitting of glasses and lenses, to services for the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, such as glaucoma. The expenses of these services tend to vary based on the provider--depending on the plan, vision insurance may cover services performed by ophthalmologists (medical doctors), optometrists, or opticians. Types of coverage that vision plans provide can also vary, so employers should assess what level of coverage they want to make available based on employee needs and cost containment.
