When Choosing Employee Benefits, Don't Overlook Vision

Eye care is an essential component of overall health, yet for many employers, vision coverage is an afterthought. But there’s a vital need in the workforce for good vision – a need that MedBen VisionPlus can help your group meet.

According to Employee Benefit News, poor vision can affect your employees – and consequently, their job performance – in a variety of ways:

  • Slightly miscorrected vision – so slight an employee may not even notice – can reduce productivity by up to 20%.
  • Vision problems can worsen mental decline and depression – issues that are already a heavy burden on today’s workforce.
  • The right eyewear can help employees counter their issues with light and glare sensitivity.
  • More than 90% of employees agree their vision benefit will be more important to them as they age.

Moreover, a vision plan is one of the most affordable types of health care coverage – and as the list above demonstrates, it’s a benefit that pays for itself in multiple ways.

VisionPlus puts your employees’ eyes first, by promoting regular exams and early detection and treatment of visual impairments. And because detection reduces the risk of major medical costs down the road, it’s a perfect complement to your health care plan.

Eye care coverage is more than just an “bonus” benefit… it’s fundamental to better health. To learn what VisionPlus can do for your employees, contact MedBen Vice President of Sales & Marketing Brian Fargus at bfargus@medben.com.
