Why Vision Insurance?
It’s the smart, affordable way to keep an eye on your vision – and your health.
It’s estimated that more than half of all Americans need vision correction1. But there are millions more who aren’t seeing life to the fullest because they don’t have corrective eyewear. AARP® MyVision Care provided through EyeMed offers three plans to make it easier to afford regular eye exams as well as prescribed vision correction.

Your eye exam: Seeing wellness inside and out
You may think you need an eye exam only when it’s time to update your eyewear prescription. But the truth is, eye exams are about a lot more than seeing if you need a new pair of glasses or contacts.
Besides measuring your vision, regular eye exams can help identify early signs of certain chronic health conditions.
This includes high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and high cholesterol2. So even if you don’t need vision correction, it’s important to take charge of your eye care. When you get your eyes checked every year, you’re helping your eyes – and possibly your whole body – stay well.
