Seeing double the impact

Caring for your eyes is caring for your health—so vision care should start early and continue regularly.

In fact, early attention to vision problems in childhood may help avoid related learning and developmental problems down the road.

Reading is believing

UnitedHealthcare Vision Resources educates members and their families on critical eye care topics, including:

  • Children’s eye health.
  • What serious medical conditions an eye exam can reveal.
  • Signs of cataracts.
  • The impacts of heart disease and diabetes on eyes.
  • Nutrition to support healthy eyes.
  • How some medications may affect vision.
  • Pregnancy’s impacts on your eyes.

For a deeper look into the topics above, visit the Resources.

  • Fitness & Lifestyle. Discounted fitness memberships and training, as well as restaurants, tech services, entertainment and more.

A view to better health

Whether you have children or are about to, you want to know you’ve foreseen all the potential pitfalls—but unexpected vision issues may obscure the view. Based on our extensive health data, UnitedHealthcare has expanded its eye care benefits to clear the fog.

Clearer vision ahead

Expanded benefits apply to both expectant mothers and children up to age 13, and include:

  • Second eye exam within the plan year—for no additional premium (just the standard copays apply).
  • 1 new pair of glasses (lenses and frames), when your prescription changes 0.5 diopter or more in a plan year.5
  • 106,000 locations6 for network eye care and retail providers.
