Getting an eye exam is beneficial to your health!
Getting an eye exam is more than just testing your vision. Eye exams can assist in the early detection of vision conditions and health conditions such as:
High Blood Pressure
That’s why it’s important to get an eye exam on a regular basis. Children need eye exams, too! Did you know the American Optometric Association recommends that children receive an eye exam as early as six months of age? Our nationwide provider network will be happy to assist you in servicing your vision care needs.
**LASIK and PRK Benefit
EyeMed is pleased to provide all EyeMed Vision Care members with a laser vision correction benefit. EyeMed and LCA-Vision have arranged to provide this benefit to all EyeMed Vision Care members through the U.S. Laser Network. Members are entitled to a 15% discount on the usual and customary fees for LASIK and PRK procedures, or a 5% discount on any promotional pricing, whichever is the greater benefit. One easy phone call to 1-877-5LASER6 begins the process of using your benefit. No claim forms are needed, making it a hassle free process for members.
Continued Eyewear Savings
Your EyeMed benefit also provides for continued savings on additional eyewear purchases. After your initial benefits have been utilized, you are able to receive ongoing discounts on additional complete pair eyewear purchases at EyeMed provider locations, which result in discounts up to 40% off the retail price. See your EyeMed provider for details.
Contact Lens By Mail Program You may order replacement contact lenses for competitive prices via the internet, and have the contacts mailed directly to your home. The service is for replacement contact lenses only, and your core benefit allowance or discount will not apply to the service. Your initial pair of contact lenses must still be purchased from your eye care provider to ensure proper fit and follow-up care. Simply visit www.eyemedvisioncare.com for details, and a link to the order site.
