$150 Annual Eyewear Benefit
How it works
You can get up to $150 toward the full retail price (not sale price) for one complete pair of prescription eyeglasses and/or contact lenses from a provider in the EyeMed network1. Or, get up to $90 toward the price for one complete pair of eyeglasses and/or contact lenses from a store not in the EyeMed network2. (Discounts cannot be combined.
