“I am a low income senior citizen and my nephew got me a free for a year plan. It was great! I had a fantastic eye exam and got brand new glasses that I would not have been able to afford. Thank you so much, VSP.”
– Sandy Harris, PA

“Our son needed new glasses and currently did not have an eye care plan due to being unemployed. He does amazingly detailed work creating toys, gifts and holiday decorations on a scroll saw for our home based company and was getting headaches and could not work for very long with his old glasses.”
– Linda Snow

“As a mother and knowing that my son does not have vision insurance, I felt it necessary to purchase the plan for him.”
– Sherrill Huddleston, CA

“I love my own VSP plan, originally came to VSP through an employer benefit, then when company changed vision plans, chose to purchase own VSP separately because it is superior to the one offered. Then went to VSP when my friend needed a vision plan”
– Lissa Redshaw, FL
