Utah Vision Plan FAQs

    Your vision plan should cover:

    • Annual comprehensive eye exam

    • Scratch-Resistant Coating
    • Anti-Glare (Anti-Reflective) Coating
    • Impact-Resistant Lenses
    • Progressive (No-Line Multifocal) Lenses
    • Light-to-dark (Photochromic Adaptive) Lenses
    • UV Protection
    • High-Index Lenses
  • What tips should I consider when shopping for plans?

    • Annual Benefits: If you prefer annual coverage, make sure your vision plan covers yearly benefits, rather than every two years.
    • Doctor Network: Search for a provider before enrolling to make sure one is convenient to your location.
    • Frame Allowance: Your vision plan should include a generous allowance for frames, regardless of frame brands, so you have more options.
    • Enrollment Fees: Look out for hidden fees, such as plans with a low monthly fee but a high initial enrollment fee.
    • Start Date: Some plans have a waiting period before using your benefits. With VSP, you can usually start the next business day.
    • Lens Enhancements: Make sure if you wear progressive lenses that your type of lenses are covered.
