Additional Benefits Leading the Market

DeltaVision® is committed to going one step further for our members by providing unique product solutions not available anywhere else. The following product enhancements set us apart from other vision plans.

KidsCare

KidsCare meets the eye care and eyewear demands of active and growing children by providing two comprehensive eye exams and an additional pair of covered lenses with a prescription each year. When added to the many other important benefits specifically-designed for children, DeltaVision® is the clear choice for kids.

They grow up fast!

Annual benefits are vital to maintaining a child’s overall health and wellness. Why? The rapid physical development children experience in just one year can cause children to outgrow their glasses and experience significant vision changes. If left untreated, vision issues may seriously impact a child’s overall development, which is why the KidsCare benefit is so important.

Why annual benefits for kids makes sense.

  • Parents appreciate the financial security of having their children’s eye care needs met more frequently, potentially saving hundreds of dollars.
  • Children are prone to losing, damaging and breaking glasses.
  • Frame warranties typically cover only manufacturer defects and are good for just one year.

The benefits of KidsCare

Annual vision benefits are especially important in growing children because vision problems left untreated can seriously impact development. And, as we know, children are prone to losing, damaging or breaking their glasses.

  • 80% of what children learn is through their eyes.1
  • 20% of preschoolers have a refractive error.2
  • One in every four school-age children have vision problems that, if left untreated, can affect learning ability personality, and adjustment in school.3

Rapid physical development in even one year can cause children to outgrow their glasses and experience significant vision changes. Plus, parents appreciate the financial security of having their children’s eye care needs met more frequently, potentially saving them hundreds of dollars.

Suncare Enhancement

DeltaVision® goes beyond prescriptions to offer extra protection for your clients and their employees. Suncare provides additional benefits that cover the cost of non-prescription sunglasses. Protecting eyes from the sun is important, whether you need prescription glasses or not.

Why Suncare?

While many people understand the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays cause skin cancer, only 6% know that UV rays can also harm the eyes. UV exposure can lead to the development of serious eye diseases, including tumors, cataracts and macular degeneration. These diseases can result in increased medical costs, lost productivity and drastic impacts to quality of life.

  • 20% of all cataracts are caused by extended exposure to UV rays.4
  • 80% of lifetime exposure to UV rays occurs by age 18.5
  • 1.8 million Americans age 40 and older have macular degeneration and another 7.3 million are at risk of developing the eye disease.6

How it works

Suncare encourages members to visit a provider for an annual eye exam. In addition to providing members with a frame allowance, Suncare also provides benefits to cover non-prescription sunglasses.

Members can then choose to use their frame allowance either toward regular glasses and lenses, or toward non-prescription sunglasses from their DeltaVision provider’s frame options.

DeltaVision 150 Plus with EasyOptions

EasyOptions allows members to choose the benefit that best suits their needs. Rather than being locked into choosing a benefit during open enrollment, they can choose one of five benefit upgrades at the time of service: $250 frame allowance, anti-reflective lenses, progressive lenses, or a $200 contact lens allowance.
