Ideas For Giving

Help someone you care about see more clearly

You might be surprised at how much a person can benefit from a VSP® vision plan:

  • Save money on frames, lenses, contacts, eye exams, and more
  • Maintain better overall health, including better eye health
  • Detect health issues (such as diabetes or hypertension) years before he or she starts showing symptoms
  • Enjoy the confidence that comes from having clear vision and great eyewear that meets his or her needs

Who can benefit from improved vision?

If you’ve never considered giving a gift like this before, consider the following opportunities:

  • A loved one who’s retired

  • College-age nieces or nephews
  • Young couples or families just starting out
  • Single parents who don’t have benefits through their employer
  • Less fortunate members of the community, parents, or grandparents

When to give the gift of sight?

The possibilities are practically endless:

  • Graduations
  • Birthdays
  • The holidays
  • As community initiatives
  • As part of church or mission activities
  • In conjunction with civic groups
  • Starting high school or middle school
  • As an anonymous gift to someone in need

What happens after I purchase a plan?

“I wanted to share a good experience with my friend. VSP is the best vision plan on the market.”

– Anonymous

“An eye appointment and contacts are very expensive. Young adults in college or with young children don’t have a lot of extra money. Proper eye care can get pushed aside in lieu of paying bills, and other family & financial demands. It is a gift I chose for my adult children so they don’t compromise their eye care for other responsibilities.”

– Susan Bracken, MO

“Our son needed new glasses and currently did not have an eye care plan due to being unemployed. He does amazingly detailed work creating toys, gifts and holiday decorations on a scroll saw for our home based company and was getting headaches and could not work for very long with his old glasses.”

– Linda Snow

“As a mother and knowing that my son does not have vision insurance, I felt it necessary to purchase the plan for him.”

– Sherrill Huddleston, CA

“I love my own VSP plan, originally came to VSP through an employer benefit, then when company changed vision plans, chose to purchase own VSP separately because it is superior to the one offered. Then went to VSP when my friend needed a vision plan.”

– Lissa Redshaw, FL

“My niece was raised by me and I know she has issue with her sight. I wanted to make sure she takes good care of her eyesight and since she’s a full-time student I wanted to pay for her insurance”

– Claudia Atherton, OR

“I have the plan through my employer, it is the best vision plan I have ever had. My partner needed new glasses and didn’t have vision insurance, so knowing how good the plan is, I purchased it for him. He now has new glasses and is seeing just fine again.”

– James Heath, VA

“Excellent vision plan; my son does not have vision insurance so I knew this would be a good gift for him.”

– Julie Orlando, FL

“Eye exams are expensive and my mother cannot afford what it cost. The insurance cut her cost in half which made my parents very happy.”

– Dorothy O’Brien, NM

“My nana needs transitions and no line bifocals which was costly for her in the past. I had such a good experience using my vsp from my employer, that I went to the site to see how to get individual insurance and found out about the gift program. Now she was able to get brand name frames that she loves, polarized transitions which were free, Hoya EX lens treatment for computers a big discount on her prescription! And I was able to surprise her with the gift on the day of her visit.”

– Sarah Ratliffe II, IL

“I prefer VSP and my husband needed insurance so I got it for him, giving it as a gift was the easiest way, and allowed me access rather then trying to have him set it up. He works long hours so I try to do things for him.”

– Heather Adams, AZ

“My husband and I have had VSP for years through his work. We love the insurance. My son wears glasses and buying them without insurance is expensive, so I got him a policy.”

– Judy Gray, AR
