Vision Coverage

Vision providers take care of your child's eyes. You do not need an OK from your child's primary care physician (PCP) for vision care. Services include:

  • An eye exam every 12 months
  • One pair of nonprosthetic eyewear every 12 months

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) also offers an enhanced benefit for eyewear for children as a Value-Added Service. Please see Enhanced Eyewear for Kids.

Enhanced Eyewear For Kids
