Your recipient’s eyes not only affect how they see, but how they feel. A vision plan from VSP will help your recipient take care of them, save money and can lead to a better quality of life, including:
- Fewer headaches
- Better performance at school
- Less computer eye strain
- More effectiveness at work
- Better performance in sports
It all starts with an eye exam. During their eye exam, the doctor can also detect early signs of serious general health conditions so they can manage them before they become more difficult problems. This can include things like diabetes and high blood pressure.
Whether you’re looking for classic frames or trendy styles, you’ll find the best selection of frames at your VSP doctor’s office. You can use your allowance toward any frame that your VSP doctor carries. Plus, we offer an additional $20 to spend on these frame brands:

Our vision plans provide savings on many lens enhancements:
- Scratch-resistant coating – A clear coating that is less likely to scratch than uncoated lenses.
- Anti-glare (anti-reflective) coating – A coating that increases a lens’s light transmission. It also reduces the amount of light reflected from the lens surface and eliminates ghost images.
- Impact-resistant lenses – Lenses built from polycarbonate material, which is up to 10 times stronger than glass or plastic lenses.
- Progressive (No-line multifocal) lenses – Progressive lenses are line-free, and their prescription strength gradually changes from distance to intermediate to near vision.
- Light-to-dark (photochromic adaptive) lenses – Light-sensitive lenses that darken when exposed to sunlight and lighten when sun exposure is reduced.
- UV protection – A lens treatment that absorbs the harmful portion of UV light found in sunlight.
- High-index lenses – These thinner, lighter lenses are designed to improve comfort and attractiveness for those with high prescriptions.
“I too was so skeptical about this. So excited to get an eye exam and two new pair of glasses. Thank you all for the giving me this opportunity. I am self employed, with no insurance for eye care. Thank you”

“I'm a sole proprietor with two children at home. I don't make a lot and have not been able to afford health insurance for myself, only my kids. As such, my glasses were years out of date. I was finally able to get GOOD glasses which help me in my work and have decreased my headaches. Such a blessing.”

“My niece was raised by me and I know she has issue with her sight. I wanted to make sure she takes good care of her eyesight and since she’s a full-time student I wanted to pay for her insurance.”
