Benefits of Vision Coverage

photo: a woman holding eye glassesGood vision is crucial to your overall health. Since 80 percent of the sensory information your brain receives comes from your eyes1, good vision affects your quality of life as well. In addition, 50 to 90 percent of employed adults suffer from computer vision syndrome. These symptoms include eye strain, dry eyes, blurred and double vision.2
