Lenses, Frames, Contact Lenses and Laser Eye Surgery
The Plan covers a total $225 every two calendar years for prescribed eyeglasses (frames and lenses), contact lenses, laser eye surgery, and intraocular lenses used in cataract surgery (once every calendar year for employees and dependents under age 21).

Visual Training
Visual training services are covered as required for the treatment of ocular muscle imbalance, or other medical condition(s) as approved by Medavie Blue Cross, to a lifetime maximum of $200 per person. These services are reimbursed at 100% of the eligible expense, as established and approved in advance by Medavie Blue Cross. 
 
Certain approved providers may offer a pay direct arrangement.  In such circumstances, the approved provider will submit the claim to Medavie Blue Cross electronically and you will only pay the provider the portion of the claim that is not covered by this benefit. If pay direct is not available, please refer to the How to Submit a Claim section of this document.
