Yes, one pair of standard, daily-wear soft contact lenses or a three-month supply of disposable lenses with a cleaning kit may be selected instead of all eyeglasses. A $25 in-network copayment applies.

I am having trouble with my new glasses and I don’t like how they look, what can I do?

Glasses are fully guaranteed for 30 days and may be exchanged or returned for any reason within that timeframe. Eyeglasses are also guaranteed against breakage for one year. If your glasses break within a year of obtaining them, return them to your provider.

I have a medical issue that is affecting my vision. Is that covered under Davis Vision?
