What eye insurance companies does For Eyes accept?
To use your vision insurance, you’ll need to take a copy of your insurance card to your nearest For Eyes location, along with your valid photo I.D. And if your plan isn’t on our website, you can contact your nearest optical store to see if we take it.
For Eyes takes most vision plans, including but not limited to:
- Block Vision
- Davis Vision
- DC Vision (only in Maryland and Washington, D.C.)
- EyeMed Vision Care
- General Vision Services (GVS)

We also take Medicare Advantage. If you’re a retiree searching for great deals on glasses, For Eyes is the way to go. You can even receive a free comprehensive eye exam or pay a small copay, depending on your coverage.
Many of the vision insurance providers we work with offer steep discounts for those with Medicare Advantage, sometimes even providing prescription eyewear at no out-of-pocket cost to you. Some plans offer progressive lenses for just $50, ensuring you’ll get the vision correction you need with little to no upfront costs.
In addition to Medicare Advantage, For Eyes takes Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). To take advantage of this, please give your FSA card to a receptionist at the front counter when checking out. You’ll want to save a copy of the itemized receipt and send it with the appropriate documentation to your eye insurance company for reimbursement.
For more information on what your insurance plan covers, we recommend calling your provider. Any eye care expert at For Eyes can also go over your vision benefits and eligibility with you, no matter your plan.
Just remember that not every insurance plan is available in each optical store. Are you curious if we work with other eye insurance companies? Feel free to ask your local For Eyes. Our eye care team would love to hear from you and answer your questions.
What is covered by eye insurance?
Vision insurance covers the following:
Comprehensive Eye Exams
All of our locations provide comprehensive eye examinations. At your appointment, the eye doctor will conduct various eye tests to gauge your visual acuity and assess your overall eye health.
They can also help diagnose underlying health problems if they notice symptoms in the eyes. (Two common health issues found by eye doctors are diabetes and high blood pressure.)
If your comprehensive eye examination reveals that you need glasses, and you have eye insurance, you’re in good hands. Eye insurance covers prescription glasses up to a certain price point.
All you have to do is pick out your lenses and frames. Our eye care team will then order your prescription lenses and fit you for glasses after they arrive at our location.
Need prescription lenses, but glasses aren’t for you? No problem. Most eye insurance also covers glasses’ inconspicuous cousin: contact lenses.
At For Eyes, we offer many brands and styles of contact lenses, including Acuvue, Air Optix, Biofinity, Clariti, and DAILIES. Ask your local For Eyes today whether daily, weekly, or bimonthly lenses are right for you.
Were you aware that you can get a prescription for your sunglasses? That’s right. You’re not limited to your glasses or contact lenses! That means that if you want to enjoy time outdoors and be able to see, prescription sunglasses are a great solution.
Most vision insurance plans include prescription sunglasses. That can help you to save money on your lenses and use the same prescription outdoors as you use indoors, helping your eyes feel and work their best.
What kind of insurance do you need for glasses?
To get your glasses paid for in partial or full, that requires vision insurance. Otherwise, you’d have to pay for your frames, lenses, eye exams, and more out of pocket.
So, if you have astigmatism, farsightedness, nearsightedness, or another eye condition, eye insurance is a good idea. That way, you can save on the cost of glasses and general eye care.
The number of glasses you can get varies based on the insurance. The best thing to do is talk to your local optical store to see how often you can get new eyeglasses or contacts. (Most providers cover a new pair every year, as your vision can change within a year’s time.)
Summary: Which vision plans do you take?
For Eyes accepts many vision plans with several major eye insurance companies, such as AARP, EyeMed, Heritage Optical, Humana, and MetLife Vision. And using your plan is simple when you work with our friendly eye care team.
All you’ll need to do is provide a copy of your insurance card and driver’s license so that we can verify your coverage. Then, you can head into your comprehensive eye exam or work with our optical experts to select new prescription glasses from our wide selection.
