which can be for one person or a friends/family group, 
But,
The second frame must be purchased by the time the first pair is completed and picked-up.
And,
There can also be a 10% discount on a second pair or Rx lenses, when the second pair is 
the same Rx as the first pair AND is ordered withing 60 days of the first pair.

VISIONS is not and cannot be a direct vision plan provider.
HOWEVER,
​VISIONS is now offering up to a 20% discount 
to holders of traditional vision insurance plans.
(Upon Request and with proof of active insurance.).
HOWEVER,
This "insurance discount" CANNOT be combined with other  promotions/discounts.

General FYI:


 Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)
 Health Savings Accounts(HSA)

More and more vision plans are becoming 
more and more restrictive 
regarding the products and services they will cover.
In some cases, most notably EYEMED and VSP,
 there is a direct corporate relationship
 between the vision plan and specific frame companies,
 lens companies and optical retailers.
Also, VSP requires that the dispensary (frame/lens section)
be owned at least 51% by the doctor.

If you want more flexibility/control in 
your health/vision care decisions,
AND
the bonus of a tax benefit,
you may want to look into 
whether your employer offers access to either 
Flexible Spending Accounts 
OR 
Health Savings Accounts
(which are attached to some high-deductible general health care plans).

Flexible Spending Account (FSA) funds are for one year only - 
"Use it or Lose it".

 Health Savings Account (HSA) dollars
can generally be rolled over from year to year.
Both plans have the added benefit of having your 
self-determined plan funds deducted from your paycheck 
BEFORE withholding taxes are calculated 
(i.e., a tax savings).

NOTE:
Open enrollment for these plans is generally
in the third month before the end of the fiscal/financial year.
In the commercial business world, that means OCTOBER 
For teachers and Gov't. workers
 it may be in April or May.

See your Human Resources / Personel Dept.
for availability / details.
