EyeMed is a voluntary vision care benefit offered to full-time employees of Hamilton County Department of Education as of January 1, 2009.

EyeMed serves over 143 million members in the U.S. and offers a wide network of independent and national retail providers including LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Target Optical, Sears Optical, J.C. Penney Optical and Sunglass Hut.

Vision care is essential for maintaining overall good health. Eye exams not only identify vision related problems but may also detect other major medical conditions that affect our health such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and more.

Members pay $10 copay for an annual eye exam and $15 copay for the lenses. Frames are covered at 100% up to a $120 allowance with a 20% discount for balances over $120.* Please refer to the plan design document for further information on the benefits and frequency of coverage.

You may call EyeMed’s Customer Service Department at 1-866-299-1358 with questions. Please provide the policy number 9728981 and specify that the network is the “Select Network”.
