The Superior Vision by MetLife plan pays benefits for annual exams and corrective lenses. You pay a copay for exams, and the plan pays for frames and lenses up to certain limits. You may use in-network or out-of-network vision care providers, but you receive greater benefits when you use in-network providers. The plan will pay the allowance for either contact lenses or eyeglass frames once every 12 consecutive months. You can receive benefits for either eyeglasses or contact lenses in the same 12-month period, not both. In addition to the benefits described in the table on this page, you can take advantage of discounts through the Superior Vision by MetLife plan.

Contact Lens Fitting

The vision plan includes coverage for contact lens fittings. To be eligible for this benefit, you must use a network provider from the Superior Vision provider directory who has the code “CLI” next to his or her name or indicates “CFL” (contact lens fitting) on the Internet. The plan covers standard lens fitting as well as fitting for specialty lenses (up to a $50 retail allowance after a $35 copay.) The fitting benefit is in addition to your contact lens allowance. You can get your contact lens fitting and then get either glasses or contact lenses.
