During these extraordinary times, good eye health means more than just having 20/20 vision. Research has shown that annual eye exams play a critical role in the early diagnosis of health conditions ranging from vision to cognitive functions and heart health. An eye exam can detect more than 30 different systematic and eye diseases, and a study found that 20% of people first learn they are diabetic as a result of an eye exam.
Vision itself is important too, and the risk of blindness can be reduced by 90% when diagnosed and treated with follow-up preventative care.
Starting routine eye care early is crucial considering that 80% of what a child learns is visual.1 Impaired vision can impact schoolwork, behavior, sports, and overall development when not addressed immediately so preventative action can be taken.
Finally, technology and screens continue to be used daily for work and socialization, and it’s taking a toll on our eyes. A reported 50 – 90% of computer and device users experience visual issues or Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS).2
Not only is good eye health indicative of an individual’s overall health, but it can impact every part of your work and social life. That is why Versant Health is committed to providing members with access to managed vision care to promote good eye health.

A comprehensive vision care plan doesn’t begin and end with an eye exam. With Versant Health’s three core competencies in wellness vision, utilization management, and medical claims review, members are provided eye care services and help managing costs throughout the care continuum.
Managed eye health provided by Versant Health also helps with the costs of eye surgery. When preventative care is taken and maintained, it can reduce the need for costly medical procedures to begin with. Utilization management and medical claims review ensure that you are not paying for unnecessary or duplicate medical expenses before and after surgery.
Having a vision plan can help reduce the costs of routine and medical eye care. Comprehensive plans can also help you navigate surgical procedures so you receive quality care at a fair price. Considering 75% of the American population needs some form of vision correction, a vision care plan that encourages regular eye exams can be one of the best investments for your overall health.3
