Vision: A small and inexpensive employee benefit that can help Dallas Fort Worth, Texas businesses save money

A group vision plan is a minor and inexpensive employee benefit that can play an imporant role in detecting disease in employees any Dallas Fort Worth Texas business.  While most employees like vision insurance benefit to get low cost eyeglasses and contacts, the annual vision checkup plays an important role in the employee's overall employee health care and wellness. 

Many serious and costly diseases can often be detected earlier through a thorough eye examination than they would through a physical exam.  And since many employees today are responsible for covering the cost of part or all of a doctor visit, many employees forego the annual wellness exam.  This often makes the eye exam the first and only line of defense for discovering debilitating diseases.

Diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol or lipidemia can be detected during a routine eye exam, as can brain disorders such as multiple sclerosis (MS) and even some brain tumors.  If these disorders are detected in early stages through a routine eye exam, employees can avoid or mitigate many of the effects from these chronic and life threatening diseases.  If left untreated, these diseases can cause irreparable damage and cause a lifetime of suffering and expense to the employee, the employee's family, and the employer.

Whether or not many employees or spouses need eye glasses, every employee and dependent needs the annual eye exam as part of their routine health care to rule out these diseases.
