The vision plans from Vision Service Plan (VSP)—the Basic Vision Plan or the EasyOptions Premier Plan—cover an annual eye exam and a pair of glasses or contact lenses every calendar year. They also offer discounts on other products and services.

Both plans offer discounts when you purchase contact lenses, additional glasses and sunglasses, and laser vision surgery through VSP providers [PDF]. In addition, both plans offer the LightCare benefit for ready-to-wear (not prescription) sunglasses or blue light filtering glasses from a VSP provider. However, the EasyOptions Premier Plan provides a higher allowance for frames and lenses, and covers certain lens options in full.
