Davis Vision makes vision care coverage its daily chore. The firm is a vision insurance provider that serves about 16 million eye plan members through employer client groups. The company operates across the US through benefits contracts with companies, government agencies, unions, and insurance companies. In addition to covering eye exams and eyewear, Davis Vision offers discounted laser vision-correction surgery. Its centralized laboratories fill some 6,000 custom ophthalmic orders daily. Davis Vision also provides customers with a mail-order contact lens replacement service called Lens 123. The company was founded as a family optical business in 1917; today it is a subsidiary of Highmark.
Davis Vision offers standardized pricing, benefits, and merchandise across its provider network. Its plans range from discount-only to full coverage exam and eyewear benefits. In addition, Davis Vision offers a disease management program (called the Eye Health Connection) that provides optimal benefits for customers suffering from vision problems caused by cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration.
The company operates four lens fabrication laboratories that ship orders to contracted providers across the US. It also offers its Davis Vision Collection, a group of 250 frames available through its contracted optometrists at a heavy discount. The company requires that all its 34,000 contracted providers (ophthalmologist and optometrist offices and retail outlets) meet the company's regulations and quality requirements in order to be part of its network.
As a part of the Highmark network of companies, Davis Vision enjoys cooperative relationships with sister companies Eye Care Centers of America (retail optical chain) and Viva Optique (glasses manufacturing and distribution). – less
