Making the Most of Your Vision Insurance Before the Year Ends



The end of the year is quickly approaching and with that the end of most of your insurance plan benefits. In most cases, unused insurance benefits from this year will not be carried over to the new year. So this means, use it or lose it!

At Stanton Optical, we’ve taken the time to remind our valued customers of their vision insurance/benefits and provide you with tips on how to use those benefits before year end.

Stanton Optical accepts a variety of vision insurance plans. Our vision specialists are knowledgeable and trained to help answer any questions related to insurance benefits, what your vision insurance covers, and whether or not a co-pay will be needed.

What Does My Vision Insurance Cover?

Most vision insurance plans will cover the following:

When it comes to contact lens exams and contact lenses, there can be many areas of grey with your insurance plan.  It’s important to check with your vision insurance provider on your plan coverage. Don’t have the time to check? When you schedule your appointment, let us know and we’ll do it for you!

Most vision insurance plans consider lens upgrades, coatings or add-ons to be electives which may not be covered.

How to Maximize Your Vision Benefits

If you find yourself with extra FSA money after getting your eye exam and purchasing your glasses, that money could be spent on eyewear accessories. At Stanton Optical, we offer the following accessories:

  • Lens Cleaner Kit
  • Microfiber cloths
  • Specialized Towelettes
  • Glasses neck strap

If accessories aren’t your thing, then take full advantage of your vision insurance by checking to see if your plan covers a pair of backup glasses. If it does, you could get a backup pair for the office or your purse.
