Community Eye Care

Benefit Overview

 
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 eyewear
  • An annual contact lens fitting, re-fit, or evaluation

You can use your flexible eyewear allowance annually to get frames, lenses, contact lenses, and lens enhancements. Even non-prescription eyewear is covered!  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. 
 
In addition, you'll receive a 20% discount on the overage for both purchases from most providers.

Importance of Vision

 

Eye Exams are Essential

 

Everyone needs an annual eye exam, regardless of age or physical health. During your exam, your doctor will check your vision and your eyes for common diseases such as:

  • Glaucoma
  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Cancer


Even if you have perfect vision, your annual eye exam is a critical component to your overall health and wellness.

Sunglasses Save Eyes

 

Sunglasses aren’t just a fashion accessory. They 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.
