Taking care of your vision health is important — especially if you need eyeglasses or contact lenses. The ITW Vision Plan, administered by VSP, offers an extensive network of vision care providers, an annual vision exam and coverage for prescription glasses or contact lenses.

How the Plan Works

You can go to any vision care provider you want, but you will pay less if you go to a VSP provider.

Is the ITW Vision Plan Right for Me?

You should consider enrolling in the ITW Vision Plan if you or a covered family member needs glasses or contact lenses. Keep in mind that the ITW medical plans include free eye exams, so if preventive care exams are all you need, the cost of coverage for the ITW Vision Plan might not be worth it.

However, with VSP LightCare, if you are enrolled in the ITW Vision Plan and don’t need prescription glasses or contacts, you can use the frame allowance for ready-to-wear, non-prescription blue light filtering glasses or non-prescription sunglasses (instead of prescription eyewear) — both with blue light defense baked right into the lenses.
