Vision Discount Changes in 2014

If you have Dental II or State Dental, you also have access to a free vision discount program through EyeMed Vision Care. 
Starting in 2014, there have been some changes to the current discount program, including an increase to the frame discount (35 percent off the
retail price), and a decrease in the price of bifocal lenses and the standard progressive lens add-on to bifocal lenses. 

The EyeMed Vision Discount brochure (pdf) contains more details.


If you are graduating or leaving UI, you can continue your health and dental insurance for up to 12 months.
