You have two vision care options, both provided through Vision Service Plan (VSP): the VSP Signature Plan and the VSP Signature Plus Plan. Both plans cover eye exams, lenses, frames, and contact lenses at special rates. The main difference between the two plans is that the Signature Plus Plan covers new frames every 12 months instead of every 24 months, and it also allows you to choose one of five feature enhancements each year (shaded in blue below).

The plans operate on a calendar-year rather than a service-year basis. This means that a full year doesn’t need to transpire between your vision exams. If you get an exam in December 2020, for example, you can get your next exam anytime in 2021.
