About Vision Insurance
Why offer vision Insurance for employees?
Vision insurance is a relatively simple yet valuable group benefit, and vision care is important for the well-being and overall health of your employees. Because many vision and eye conditions have no obvious symptoms, if an employee has a problem, even one that could cause permanent vision loss, he or she may be unaware of it. Periodic eye examinations can also detect various health problems such as high cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes, cancers, and autoimmune disorders. For these reasons and more, vision care with routine exams is an extremely important part of preventive healthcare.
Focusing on the facts of vision
A vision insurance plan is one of the top five most-desired benefits, after medical insurance, by employees.¹
More than 75 percent of U.S. residents between age 25 and 64 require some sort of vision correction.²
Vision problems affect 120 million Americans and cost businesses an estimated $8 billion annual because of reduced productivity.³
Employers gain up to $7 for every $1 spent on vision coverage.4
More than 70 percent of Americans reported loss of eyesight as “10” on a scale of 1 – 10, with 10 being the worst thing that could happen to them. It means a loss of independence, mobility and quality of life.4
