Vision Plan

Having an annual eye exam is one of the best ways to ensure you are keeping your eyes healthy. You can enroll in vision coverage to save money on eligible vision care expenses such as eye exams, glasses, and contact lenses.

The E*TRADE vision care plan, administered by Vision Service Plan (VSP), provides great benefits on eye examinations and eyewear, plus valuable discount programs, all at an affordable price. The plan offers:

  • Personalized care. You will get quality care that focuses on your eyes and overall wellness with a WellVision Exam® from a Vision Service Plan (VSP) doctor. They will look for vision problems and signs of other health conditions, in addition to assessing your vision for corrective lenses or treatment.
  • Provider choice. With open access to see any eye care provider, you can choose the right one for you. Choose a Vision Service Plan (VSP) doctor or any other provider.
  • Savings. When you see a Vision Service Plan (VSP) doctor, you will get the most out of your benefit and have lower out-of-pocket costs. Plus, Vision Service Plan (VSP) guarantees that you will be 100% happy with your eye care and eyewear from a Vision Service Plan (VSP) doctor.
  • Eyewear. Chose the eyewear that is right for you and your budget. From classic styles to the latest fashions, you will find hundreds of options for you and your family.

When you enroll in the vision plan, you will enjoy these key features:

  • Eye exams are covered every year, with a low copay.
  • Coverage for prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses, so you can choose the method of correction you prefer.
