Wake Forest offers a voluntary vision plan for benefit-eligible faculty and staff members and their eligible dependents. While the Wake Forest medical plan provides coverage for annual eye exams, the vision plan helps manage the cost of eyeglasses and contact lenses. This nationwide plan, administered by Superior Vision, allows you to pay for vision benefits on a pre-tax basis.
You do not need to be enrolled in the Wake Forest medical plan to participate. After you elect to participate, you will receive a Superior Vision ID card. You may request a new card by calling Superior Vision at 800.507.3800.
Below is a summary of the plan. Please refer to the Superior Vision Plan Coverage Sheet for more details.
