Optimal Contact Lens Benefits

With High Option, you get a $150 contact lens allowance compared to Standard Option’s $140 allowance. Plus, High Option gives you full coverage for your regular contact lens evaluation, fittings and follow-ups. If you have specialty contact lenses, High Option gives you a $60 allowance.

With High Option, the savings are clear. In fact, the amount you get for your frame allowance is more than what you pay in premiums for the whole year—over $50 more per member.
