so i havent been to the eye doctor in some time, and i have noticed a change in my prescription, so i made an appointment for today. i will obviously need new contacts, but i would also like to get a new pair of eyeglasses. my question is.... what does insurance usually cover? how does it work? i have eye med access plan b. not sure if anyone is familiar with that. the last time i was at the eye doctors... i didnt have eye are insurance. so whatever i wanted, i was paying for. but say i want a pair of cute ray ban eyeglasses... does insurance only cover the lens portion and i buy the glasses? i really have no idea how it works.
thanks in advance.

Mine covers an exam and contacts or eyeglasses 100%.

every plan is different and only they can tell you what they cover. Hubby and I both just went to the eye doctor and ordered new glasses. Insurance will pay $40 for the lenses and $35 for frames for each of us. That's all, but I guess it is better then nothing.
