Skipping Eye Exams No Bargain

When it comes to vision care, don’t trust your eyes.

Put another way: Just because you see fine, that doesn’t mean there may not be trouble lurking underneath the surface.

A WebMD article about eye care bargains notes that to save money, many people choose to skip regular optometrist exams. But short-term savings now can translate to big expenses – and, more importantly, potential vision problems down the road.

Blinding diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy – the top cause of blindness among U.S. adults – often don’t produce any notable symptoms until the damage becomes irreversible. But timely care allows doctors to treat such diseases before they can do permanent harm.

MedBen VisionPlus plan members have access to low-cost, high-quality eye care. In addition to covering regular exams and basic eyeglass lenses from network physicians in full, the plan offers generous allowances for frames and contact lenses. Best of all, regular check-ups from a VisionPlus provider greatly improves the chances of early detection and treatment of visual impairments.
