Routine Vision Benefits

We're focused on your eye sight

Glasses or contacts . . . hmm. Is the choice important? We say yes. 

Did you know that 75% of Americans wear some type of corrective lense1? That's a lot of glasses and contacts! And for your employees who need vision correction, they already know the importance of routine eye exams. But they're just as important for those who may not wear glasses or contacts. In fact, routine exams can help in the early detection of serious conditions, like glaucoma, cataracts and diabetes. Things that can lead to much higher health care costs.

When you choose Capital BlueCross Vision coverage, you also choose diversity for your employees. Our national network makes it easy to find eye care providers — ophthalmologists, optometrists and opticians — plus national and local optical retailers. But choosing a provider who's licensed in our network will guarantee the lowest out-of-pocket costs for employees
