Vision insurance helps offset the costs of routine eye exams and also helps pay for vision correction wear, like eyeglasses, that may be prescribed by physicians or eye-care specialists. Vision insurance is generally considered supplemental insurance, which means that consumers generally buy vision insurance in addition to other types of medical insurance policies.
