Frequently Asked Questions
What is Eyecare Unleashed?
Eyecare Unleashed is a program that offers discounts on prescription eyeglasses, contact lenses, non-prescription designer sunglasses, and eye exams.
Is Eyecare Unleashed vision insurance?
No. Eyecare Unleashed is a discount program that gives deep discounts to their members on eyewear and services. In many cases, the discounts provided through our program are even better than those of the average vision insurance plan.
I already have vision insurance. Can I combine it with my Eyecare Unleashed discount?
Unfortunately, no. Vision insurance companies set specific copays for their insurance plans, and do not allow any additional discounts to be applied to those copays.
How do I receive my discount? Do I need to submit additional paperwork?
To use your discount, you only need to make your purchases with a participating provider. The provider will need your name and date of birth to verify your eligibility. The discount will be applied directly to your purchase. There is no additional paperwork.
How often can I use my discount?
Discount eligibility resets each calendar year, and you can use it once per year for prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses. There is no limit to the number of times you may apply a discount to eye exams or non-prescription sunglasses.
I have a difficult time finding glasses that I like. How many frames will I be able to choose from?
Unlike many vision insurance plans, there are NO restrictions on the frame you can select. Our participating providers are required to keep at least 500 ophthalmic frames and 400 sunglass frames in stock at all times to ensure a wide selection for our members.
Can I use my discount for glasses AND contacts in the same year?
Yes. Unlike vision insurance plans, you may apply your discount to the purchase of both eyeglasses and contact lenses each calendar year.
My prescription is really high. Do I get a discount on lighter lenses? What about non-glare lenses?
Yes, you get the same discount on lighter plastics and non-glare lenses that you would on basic plastic lenses. In fact, every lens option you would like is discounted at the same rate, regardless of your prescription. Just like on the frame selection, we don't believe in restrictions.
My employer stopped providing vision insurance because it is so expensive. How does Eyecare Unleashed compare in terms of cost?
Vision insurance is definitely expensive, and not having benefits can be even more so! Your employer will be happy to learn that participation in the Eyecare Unleashed program often costs absolutely nothing. In some cases however, there may be a small fee to help cover administrative costs. This is typically less than 25% of the cost of signing up for similar vision insurance.
I'd like to sign up for Eyecare Unleashed. How do I do that?
