Since regular eye exams can detect diseases like glaucoma, diabetes, and blindness, more employees are looking for vision coverage as part of their employee benefits package. Whether employees have perfect vision or need corrective lenses, preventive eye care is an important part of their overall health. As one of the country’s most respected benefits providers, Guardian can help you provide comprehensive eye coverage to your clients.

Choice of plan options

To ensure we meet the specific needs of your clients, we offer Guardian Vision with the choice of three networks: VSP, Davis Vision and Avesis.

Plus, our unique Dual Choice option allows employers to offer their members the choice between two plan types so they can best suit their needs. This option is available for employers with 50 or more eligible employees.

Consider voluntary vision insurance

Guardian Vision can be employer-paid or voluntary. There are several advantages to providing Vision coverage on a voluntary basis. Employers can offer stronger coverage without added costs, and can save on taxes because premiums are paid via automatic pre-tax payroll deductions. Employees get to enroll in valuable coverage at significantly lower rates than they would pay as individuals, and they can cover expenses that may not be paid for by other types of insurance.
