Are You Spending Too Much on Eye Care?

Written By: Michael Dollar

Did you know approximately 75% of the U.S. adult population needs some form of vision correction? Plus, one out of five school-aged children need glasses. When you think of how important good vision is, consider how it can impact a child’s schoolwork, sports performance and more. According to the American Optometric Association, 80% of what a child learns is visual. Is it any wonder then that Americans spend nearly $30 billion on eye products and services? And, without WellTree, you’re probably spending too much.


If your health insurance plan doesn’t include vision care – or even if it does – Hutchinson Traylor can help you “see” better savings with our WellTree vision discount benefit. Our goal is to give you and your family access to affordable eye exams, glasses, contacts and more. With a network of over 20,000 vision providers across the country, you’ll receive discounts at both national chains and local eye doctors. Participating chains include LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Visionworks, JCPenney, Sears, Target and more. Plus, if your eye doctor is not in the network, you can easily help him or her join.


You’ll be able to see savings such as…


  • 20% to 60% off prescription eyewear including most frames, lenses – even tinting, coating and UV protection
  • 10% to 30% off eye exams
  • 10% to 40% off the lowest contact lens prices at America’s Eyewear mail order service
  • 15% to 40% off eyeglasses and sunglasses through
  • 40% to 50% off the national average cost of LASIK surgery

Your vision discount benefit begins immediately upon enrollment, with no restrictions on the number of purchases you can make. You can use it to enhance your current vision insurance plan or you may decide to use it alone.


This great vision discount benefit is just one of the many perks available with a WellTree discount card.
