Group Vision Insurance Plan
AUSA has partnered with MetLife to offer members and their families access to vision insurance that can be important to your overall health. In fact, eye doctors can identify serious health conditions during routine eye exams. And, for less than a weekly coffee,1 you can gain coverage for you and your family.
Take Care of Your Vision and Overall Health
Having a good vision plan is important to your overall health. That's because taking good care of your eyes also helps you take better care of your body. Regular visits to your eye care professional do more than just protect your eyesight. Through routine exams, eye doctors can spot serious health problems, like diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers, and more.2
So, even if you have perfect vision, yearly exams are important. Don't let preventable health and vision problems sneak up on you. These benefits can help you stay on top of your care while setting your sights on better vision.
I never miss my daughters' games, and I chaperone all their dances. One night as I drove them to the Homecoming dance, I noticed they weren't wearing their glasses. I'm happy my vision insurance helps my girls feel less self-conscious—and provides a deep discount for contact lenses. Recently, when I had my own eye exam, my doctor caught the early signs of diabetes. Thanks to our vision coverage, I can be there to see my daughters play every game.3
MetLife Vision Insurance can help protect your eyesight and your wallet.
