Vision Plans

The University offers a choice of two separate vision plans, through the Vision Service Plan (VSP): Base and Premier.

Both vision plans offer comprehensive coverage, including eye exams and discounts on eyewear. With open access to see any eye care provider, you can see the one who is right for you. Eye exams are an important part of overall health care for you and your entire family.
