New Benefits: Take Advantage of Your New Vision Benefits

Plus, 4 Tips to Help You Maximize Your Vision Benefits!

It’s the start of a new year and it’s time to give your eyes a fresh look! Whether you need new glasses or contacts, or just a routine checkup, having someone take a good look at your eyes is vital to maintaining healthy eyes and great vision. 

Don’t Wait Any Longer!

Vision benefits and FSA/HSA funds are crucial to helping you and your family maintain healthy eyes. Coverage depends on your insurance company and the plan you’ve selected, but it’s important to not wait until the very end of the year to start using those benefits, otherwise you could leave money on the table!

So if you’ve waited, now is the time to take advantage of your new benefits. 

Change Happens Fast

Did you know that your eyes can change in as little as 30, 60, or 90 days, let alone 365 days. The amount of time it takes for change to occur does depend on your age, but relatively speaking, changes in your vision can happen fast! Because your vision and eye health can change in the blink of an eye, it’s very important to have routine eye exams, not only for prescription changes, but to catch any bigger eye health issues, such as macular degeneration or glaucoma. 

4 Ways to Maximize Your New Benefits

Now that we’ve looked at the importance of starting off fresh with an eye exam in the new year, let’s take a look at some ways you can maximize your benefits throughout the year. 

1 | Know Your Benefits

The first thing you need to do in order to maximize your benefits is to understand what your benefits cover. If you have a vision plan, what are your copays? If you have an FSA or HSA, what type of things can you spend your money on? Once you know what your plan or benefits cover, you can get the most out of all they offer!

2 | Get an Annual Eye Exam

An annual eye exam is your next stop on the to-do list of maximizing your benefits. It doesn’t make sense to buy another pair of glasses or additional contacts if your prescription has changed. An annual eye exam can uncover early signs of serious health conditions. Don’t forget that your entire family can benefit from an eye exam, so schedule an appointment for each member of the family. 

3 | Get a New Pair of Glasses

Once you’ve received an updated prescription, it’s time to get a new pair of stylish frames and lenses! Don’t forget to look into popular lens enhancements such as anti-glare and anti-reflective coatings, progressives, and transition lenses. If you’ve wanted to upgrade to one of these features, the new year is a great time to enhance your vision and your glasses!

4 | Take Advantage of Your Second-Pair Benefit

If you have a second-pair eyewear benefit, don’t leave that on the table. Glasses can be expensive and this benefit can help you get another pair to keep at the office or in your purse, or grab a pair of prescription sunglasses for the car.
