How long has it been since you've had an eye exam? Are you holding the newspaper at arm's length these days? Do you have to squint to make our street signs? Your sight is one of the most precious attributes you have. It might seem surprising, then, that so many people neglect to take proper care of their eyes. If you neglect your teeth, they'll soon send you an urgent signal in the form of a toothache, but your vision usually gets worse slowly and almost imperceptibly.

Perhaps the primary reason people neglect their vision is because of high costs. If your employer doesn't offer vision insurance, or if you're unemployed or self-employed, the expense of eye exams and glasses or contact lenses can be prohibitive. It's also a real hassle to find a vision insurance plan on your own.

Use the Internet to Find Vision Insurance

Rather than spending days looking up various vision insurance plans and then trying to compare them, you might want to use an online system to get quotes. Here's how it works. You answer a few questions such as age and location and submit it to the quote generator. Soon, usually within five to seven business days, you'll receive quotes from a number of insurance providers that service your area.

Once you have the quotes, you can choose a few of the more attractive ones to research further. Be certain you check not only the services provided and the price, but also any deductibles or annual caps. Quote generators don't usually charge a fee to the consumer for their services.
