Your Health Plan contracts with Vision Works/Davis Vision (formerly Empire Vision) to provide a comprehensive benefit that includes eye exams, eyeglasses and contact lenses.  When you use a Davis Vision network provider, you reduce the amount of out-of-pocket expense you will pay.  Exams are free and a large selection of eyewear is available with no copay.  Higher cost frames and optional lenses and coatings are available at a discounted fee.  Your benefit can be used toward service with an out-of-network provider, but you will likely pay an additional out-of-pocket amount.
