Glasses & Contacts

TOB-Glossary-Medical-Insurance-Glasses-&-contacts

Glasses and contacts refer to the coverage provided by insurance policies for prescribed lenses or glasses that are prescribed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist to correct vision. These are used to treat common vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Glasses and contact lenses work by bending light to change the way it enters the eye, allowing the individual to see more clearly. Glasses have lenses mounted in frames that sit on the individual’s nose and ears, while contact lenses are small, thin disks that sit directly on the surface of the eye.

The choice of glasses or contacts depends on the individual’s needs and preferences. Glasses are a simple and easy-to-use option for correcting vision, while contact lenses are a more convenient option for those who are active or have an active lifestyle.

It’s worth noting that Glasses & contacts coverage is not provided by all insurance policies and it is important to check the specific table of benefits to see if it is included.
