Eyesight

International Private Medical Insurance (IPMI) policies typically exclude coverage for any treatment or advice related to the eyes and eyesight, including laser eye surgery, other surgical corrections for vision impairments such as myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism, non-standard replacement lenses during eye operations, spectacles, visual aids, treatment for strabismus or amblyopia, and sight tests. This type of exclusion is common among IPMI policies, as many of these treatments are considered elective or cosmetic in nature.
