Enjoy the Simplicity
With most CEC vision plans, you and any dependents you enroll will receive the following benefits*:
- An annual routine eye exam
- An annual allowance for prescription on non-prescription eyewear
- An annual contact lens fitting, re-fit, or evaluation
Our expansive network of eye doctors gives you the ability to see your preferred provider. Need a weekend appointment? We've got you covered. CEC's network includes 25 national retail optical chains, including Visionworks, Walmart, Target Optical, and LensCrafters.
When you enroll in CEC, you can use your flexible eyewear allowance annually to get frames, lenses, contact lenses, and lens enhancements. Even non-prescription eyewear is covered! There are no restrictions on frames or lenses. You can purchase exactly what you need for the health of your eyes.
Additionally, you can use your allowance "back-to-back" to double your purchasing power. This means you can use your allowance in the last month of your plan year to purchase frames and your new allowance in the first month of the plan year to purchase glasses. This purchasing method doubles your allowance towards expensive pairs of glasses.
Sunglasses block harmful UV rays, which can damage your eyes. Because sunglasses are so important to eye health, they are a covered benefit under all of CEC’s vision plans.
CEC members can use their annual eyewear allowance to purchase a prescription or non-prescription sunglasses. In addition, other non-prescription eyewear such as blue light blocking glasses, safety glasses, and readers are also included.
Don't need corrective lenses, but a family member does? You can use your eyewear allowance to purchase non-prescription eyewear and your family member can get their prescription lenses. It's that easy!
Importance of Vision
Getting an annual eye exam is one of the best things you can do for your health and wellness. Even if you think you have perfect vision, you still need an annual eye exam. At your visit, your eye doctor will check your vision health and determine if you need corrective lenses.
