More companies than ever are focusing on helping their employees feel their best, see their best, and be their best. And we’re excited to see that so many of them recognize how important LASIK and other corrective eye procedures are to the process–particularly in a screen-glued culture of eye strain and premature ocular aging.
After all, today, 75% of Americans rely on some form of vision correction. One study found that 40% of people were hoping to improve their vision by the time they turn 30, and that’s not all. Ninety percent of people over 55 need some form of vision correction.
If you’ve been “eyeing” LASIK or other laser vision refractive eye surgeries to perfect your eyes but weren’t sure who to talk to about taking the next step, have no fear–we’ve got your back.
A majority of people who want to escape their glasses and contacts, save money and achieve the best vision of their life only have one concern — will insurance pay for LASIK?
The insurance and benefits landscape
Insurance companies have traditionally viewed LASIK as cosmetic–and unless medically necessary, would not cover it. Today, many insurance companies have started offering discounts ranging from 5-15% off because insurance companies, and private and public companies realize that good vision is vital to employee happiness, productivity and ongoing health.
Health Benefits are most important to a growing workforce. The workplace is transforming, and more employees than ever choose companies based on the benefits and culture — health, dental, vision, and bring-your-dog-to-work day.
This health-conscious trend affords employees a prime opportunity to petition their employer to invest in their eye health and improved productivity.
Many companies see a comprehensive benefits package as a way to sweeten the deal to keep employees for longer. And that’s why more companies are starting to offer LASIK benefits to their team.
Some companies that offer LASIK benefits
More and more companies are getting on board with improving the benefits they offer their employees. Companies like SpaceX offer free money towards LASIK after being with the company for 2+ years (after the deductible is met). LinkedIn and Blizzard also offer LASIK benefits to its team members. These are just a few examples of a whole swath of companies leading the health conscious revolution in workplace culture.
