- Coverage includes eye examinations with an ophthalmologist or optometrist, eyeglasses and contact lenses with little to no co-pay every 12 months.

A good way to maintain healthy vision is to see an eye care professional on a regular basis. Most adults without symptoms need an eye exam every two to four years; those with special risk factors require them more often.
It is important to see an ophthalmologist or optometrist regularly because not only do they provide a comprehensive exam, but they also screen patients for diabetes, high blood pressure, eye tumors, macular degeneration, vasculitis and retinal detachment.
The Crozer-Keystone Choices benefits program makes it easy for employees to stay on top of their vision through the Davis Vision Plan. Coverage includes eye examinations with an ophthalmologist or optometrist, eyeglasses and contact lenses with little to no co-pay every 12 months. At present, 94 percent of employees enrolled in the plan maximize their benefits by using a Davis Vision participating provider for their routine eye care.
“In 2009, Crozer-Keystone employees and family members who used their Davis Vision benefits saved an average of 82 percent off retail prices for frames, lenses and optional lens coatings.
