Do you remember the post that I did a little while back about hot crochet style with glasses? I did that because I think that crochet is a great style choice and glasses can be a terrific fashion accessory. Combined, the two can make a bold fashion statement. Although I usually wear contacts myself, I do sometimes wear glasses and I need to use one or the other to see. I’ve personally been without health insurance of any kind for over a year now (self-employed and can’t afford it!) so I jumped at the opportunity to participate in this sponsored campaign where I could get vision insurance that will allow me to get a much-needed new prescription for contacts and maybe some fashionable new eyeglasses as well.
Fun fact: did you know that eyeglasses are the only fashion item that you can get covered by insurance?
Benefits of Vision Insurance
Whenever I got health insurance in the past I always also signed on for vision and dental because those are actually the two things I usually end up using insurance for the most. Not having had insurance for the past year or so I’ve really been able to see the benefits of when I did have it and I’m excited to be getting it again.
Some of the benefits of vision insurance:
- I need to visit an eye doctor once each year to get my prescription for new contacts. The doctor’s visit is mostly covered by insurance and can be pricey without it.
- Vision insurance significantly helps reduce the cost of contacts and eyeglasses.
- Many people have come to understand that glasses are really part of a fashion choice or style. You want to get glasses that are cute. Sometimes you want more than one pair to go with the variety of different outfits that you may wear. With lenses and frames, that can get expensive so it really helps to have insurance.
