Annual benefits are vital to maintaining a child’s overall health and wellness. Why? The rapid physical development children experience in just one year can cause children to outgrow their glasses and experience significant vision changes. If left untreated, vision issues may seriously impact a child’s overall development, which is why the KidsCare benefit is so important.
Annual vision benefits are especially important in growing children because vision problems left untreated can seriously impact development. And, as we know, children are prone to losing, damaging or breaking their glasses.
Rapid physical development in even one year can cause children to outgrow their glasses and experience significant vision changes. Plus, parents appreciate the financial security of having their children’s eye care needs met more frequently, potentially saving them hundreds of dollars.
