Our Blue View VisionSM plans make it easy and affordable for our members to take care of their eyes, helping them with their overall health too. Eye doctors get an unobstructed view of the eyes’ blood vessels during an exam. They are sometimes the first to see signs of chronic conditions* like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes by looking this closely at the eyes. This is just one of the reasons why eye exams are so important.
Blue View VisionSM comes with many benefits.
Through Anthem Whole Health Connection℠ – Dental, we help your employees achieve optimal oral and overall health with:
| Access to over 33,000 eye doctors at more than 26,000 locations nationwide. With so many choices, members are sure to find an eye care professional that’s close to home or work. |
| Purchase eyewear from an eye doctor or from a variety of popular on-line and off-line optical stores, including Glasses.com, ContactsDirect, 1-800 CONTACTS, LensCrafters®, Pearle Vision®, Target Optical®, Sears OpticalSM and JCPenney® Optical. |
| Evening and weekend hours are available at many locations so members can get the eye care they need at the best time for them. |
| Less hassle. No paperwork and no ID card are required when visiting in-network doctors. |
| Additional coverage for kids. Plans that cover eyewear include coverage for UV-blocking Transitions® lenses ($110 value) and impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses ($55 value) for kids under age 19 at no additional cost.|
