I Don’t Need Vision Care

“I don’t need glasses so I don’t need Vision Care”

Honestly, how would Vision Care benefit me, if my vision is perfect?  Experts argue every person can benefit from an annual vision care exam. How?

  • During the VSP WellVision Exam, your eye doctor does much more than just determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses.
  • Your doctor will also check for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together “as a team” and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.
