Problem – Rethink Patient Eye Care
Barriers to Care

Because of the current benefit structures, many patients are forced to visit two healthcare providers when in many cases, one will do. Optometrists can and do provide comprehensive eye care services but still too often, the vision and health plan benefits are not connected in a way for patients to receive all of their eye care in one location by their primary eye care provider.

Remember, a comprehensive range of treatment and procedures can be performed by an optometrist in an optometric office.

Because most vision service-only benefit plans provide coverage for preventive well eye care and discounted materials benefits, they can lead to increased costs by duplicating coverage and create inconveniences for patients.
