Stimson’s vision plan includes an annual routine eye exam and lenses, frames or contact lenses every 24 months. The plan is administered by EyeMed.

How It Works

You can receive care from any licensed vision provider, but you maximize your benefits — and save money — when you go to in-network providers. Plus, get discounts on vision products (e.g., frames, lenses, contacts, sunglasses) and free shipping from online providers when you register on the EyeMed website.

If you go to an out-of-network provider, you will need to request reimbursement by completing an Out-of-Network Vision Services Claim Form.


All regular full-time employees are eligible to enroll in vision coverage. You can also cover your eligible dependents. If you enroll in the vision plan, you will also be enrolled in the dental plan. Coverage begins on the first day of the month following your hire date.


Here’s a quick look at the vision plan. For details, review the Vision Summary of Benefits.
