Services and Features  

VSP offers a variety of Individual Vision Plans depending on each customer's eye care needs. The Standard plan covers their WellVision Exam®, as well as prescription glasses or contact lenses, with a very reasonable copay, (the WellVision Exam is $15 and $25 for prescription glasses). Coverage includes frames and lenses every 12 months.

VSP also offers covered lens enhancements such as anti-glare, progressive lenses, light-to-dark lens tinting, impact-resistant, UV protection, and scratch-resistant coating. Enhancements can range from $16-$175, depending on the type of lens enhancement selected.

Patients have a $150 allowance for prescription glasses or contacts. If the patient chooses contact lenses, the allowance is used toward the contact lenses, fitting and evaluation. Plus, patients enjoy an additional 15% savings on contact lens exams.

Additional Services

VSP has partnered with several vendors to offer its members exclusive member extras such as additional savings on frames, lens enhancements, Lasik surgery, hearing aids, and more.
