Insurance for eye exams, glasses, contact lenses, etc. are provided to us by EYEMED. You should take advantage of our insurance coverage by having an eye exam, even if you don’t presently wear glasses.

For those of us already with vision issues, you can also visit an Ophthalmologist (Medical Doctor) under our regular medical plan who will do a more extensive exam than an Optometrist.

If you click on the link below, EYEMED coverage is explained for lenses, frames, etc.
