What is a vision discount program?

A lot of people do not think about vision discount programs, but many of us need help with impaired vision whether it is through contacts, glasses, or corrective eye surgeries. All these aids, not to mention eye exams and regular check ups, can get expensive over time. Saving on vision care is an easy way to cut healthcare spending, and one way to find those cost savings is to enroll in a vision discount program. Many different providers provide some sort of a vision discount card that gives members access to savings at thousands of optical centers across the country.
