    yup. they cover 1 annual exam (I think it's a $70/75 dollar cap?? Don't quote me on that) There's a claim form that your eye doctor files on your behalf....Insurance does not cover contacts or glasses. (You have to pay out of pocket). - - Unless, somebody knows different? I've always paid out of pocket for contacts and my glasses. Although I wear contacts everyday and only my glasses out in town for emergencies or at home, to give my eyes a 'rest'.
