Eye health is essential to overall health, however, due to a lack of affordable vision care, many Americans, almost 50%, have no vision care insurance. As a result, many Americans skip eye exams and go without corrective eyewear because they simply can’t afford it. A lack of insurance and eye health can make it incredibly difficult for some people to do daily activities, which can then lead to a decrease in, amongst other things, self-esteem and confidence. Thankfully, VSP, the nation’s only not for profit vision care company, is expanding its affordable coverage to cover people in 46 of the United States’ 50 states. Keep reading below to learn more about VSP eye health coverage, why you need vision exams, and how this type of insurance can make that attainable.
WHY EYE HEALTH IS IMPORTANT
Eye health is important because poor eyesight can influence the way you see the world. In fact, gaining better eyesight can change someone’s life, improve their self-esteem, and make people more confident as well. When people can see better and clearer, normal everyday things are easier. Even people with good vision or patients who have had laser vision correction surgery still need yearly eye exams to ensure they have had no major vision changes. As adults get older, yearly vision exams are even more important because many eye diseases are related to age. Many other health conditions can be detected by examining the eyes including hypertension, changes in the brain, diabetes, and many others. To keep your overall health in the best condition possible, don’t forget your yearly eye exam. Young children also need yearly eye exams because children’s vision can change quickly and a failure to be able to see well can negatively impact a child’s ability to read.
WHY VSP IS MAKING EYE HEALTHCARE MORE ATTAINABLE
VSP recognizes the importance of great sight to all individuals, despite age. As a result, they are making changes to make their vision care more attainable.
