Why Buy a VSP Vision Insurance Plan?

Vision is at the heart of how we experience the world. It is the most dominant of all senses, enabling us to see our surroundings. Even a small change in the quality of our vision can be immediately noticeable, with big consequences that can affect our daily routine. Despite these facts, vision insurance is often an afterthought for many people who don’t have a vision plan through an employer or group. Have you wondered what a VSP individual vision insurance plan is, how much it costs, and if it’s even worth it? Learn more about the benefits and savings of a VSP individual vision plan now.

What Is VSP Individual Vision Insurance?

VSP individual vision insurance plans provide coverage you can buy on your own to access savings on preventative eye exams and corrective eyewear. Your regular health insurance plan may cover health costs if you injured your eyes in an accident or suffered an illness that affected your vision. Routine eye exams and the costs of eyeglasses or contact lenses, however, are not usually covered by regular health plans. Routine eye exams help you correct blurry vision with current prescriptions that can increase your quality of life. An eye doctor can also detect common eye problems and signs of other health conditions, including:

 - Diabetes

- Macular degeneration

- Glaucoma

- High cholesterol

- Multiple sclerosis

- Risk of heart disease or stroke

All of these health conditions are important to identify while they are in the early stages of development, because if left untreated, they can become more serious. Routine eye exams can be an important component of this preventative approach to monitoring your health.

How Much Do VSP Individual Vision Insurance Plans Cost?

VSP vision insurance coverage is extremely affordable compared to other forms of insurance. For example, VSP Individual Vision Plans offer annual plans for as little as $13 per month. If you’re not covered by VSP, try our vision plan wizard and get a vision plan quote today.
