30-day Guarantee: If for any reason a member is not satisfied with a purchase at the retail locations or through the mail, the merchandise may be returned within 30 days for exchange or full refund. Additionally, if a member finds a lower price anywhere else on the exact same complete pair of prescription eyeglasses purchased at a participating location within 30 days of purchase, the difference will be cheerfully refunded.
Q. What is the vision benefit? Does it include eye exams? Does it include contact lenses?
A. The vision benefit offers 10% to 60% discounts on eyewear and eye care at more than 20,000 vision providers throughout the United States. Providers include national optical chains such as LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Visionworks and JCPenney, as well as regional chains and thousands of independent practitioners. Often many participating locations offer discounts of 10% on eye exams for both eye glasses and contact lenses. Additionally, the ophthalmology portion of the network offers 10% to 30% discounts on eye exams and surgical procedures, including the popular laser surgeries in select markets.
On average, members receive a 20% discount on replacement contact lenses (excluding disposable lenses) at retail locations. Members may elect to use the mail order service to purchase replacement contact lenses (including disposables) at a 10% to 40% discount.
Q. Is Coast to Coast Vision™ (CTC) discount insurance?
A. No. While an insured plan is available, CTC is a discount eyewear and eye care program. There is no paperwork. The participating retail optical locations will give the discount at the time of the purchase.
Q. Can members use CTC if they already have vision insurance?
A. Yes. In most cases CTC can be utilized to reduce out of pocket expenses. For example, once the insurance benefit has been exhausted, members may use their discount to buy additional pairs of glasses or contacts.
Q. Is there a limit on the number of times the benefit can be used?
A. There is no limit on the number of times the member or family member can take advantage of the savings provided by CTC.
Q. Does the CTC discount include family members?
A. It includes the member, their spouse and all legal dependents.
Q. What is included with CTC membership?
A. Prescription glasses and contact lenses are discounted 20% to 60% in most cases. Eye exams are discounted 10% to 30% where available.
Q. Why does the discount vary from 10% to 60%?
A. Many variables go into the calculation of the discount such as market demographics, location, hours of operation, one-hour service capability and level of retail mark-up.
Example - a chain provider in a major metropolitan mall, open seven days a week, 10 hours a day with an on-site lab, will more than likely have a different mark-up than an independent practitioner in a rural community. However, members will pay almost exactly the same price for the exact same materials regardless of where the purchase is made. Only the percentage of discount off retail may vary.
Q. Can members receive the discount at any optical location?
A. No. Members must go to an optical location that is contracted with Coast to Coast Vision to receive a discount. Our providers include national, regional and local chains as well as thousands of independent professionals.
Q. What is a dispensing fee?
A. The dispensing fee is the amount of money that is added to the provider's wholesale acquisition cost of materials. It is generally the only profit made by the provider on your purchase.
Q. Is the eye exam discounted?
A. Yes, at approximately 4,000 of our 20,000 vision providers nationwide. Our member service representatives can tell you which locations discount eye exams in your area.
Q. What do I do when I get to the location to get my discount?
A. All you need to do to receive your discount is show the provider your membership card and tell them you are with Coast to Coast Vision. It is very important that you mention Coast to Coast Vision Network to ensure a discount at the time of purchase.
Q. Do I get the discount if the store is running a sale?
A. The location will not combine our contracted discount with the sale price. However, in most cases, the Coast To Coast Vision price will be better than the sale price.
Q. Do the retail locations mark up the merchandise to give me the discount?
A. No, you receive the discount because CTC brings the buying power of millions of members to the optical retailers participating with us.
Q. How do I get my eye doctor or optician on the Coast To Coast Vision network?
A. If you wish to refer your doctor to the CTC network, just give us their name, address and phone number and we will contact them about becoming a provider. If your practitioner does not wish to join the plan, you can still use him/her for your eye exam. Simply take your prescription to one of our participating providers to receive your discount on glasses or contact lenses.
Q. How can I be guaranteed the greatest savings on contact lenses for me and for my husband?
A. Although members receive a 10% to 20% discount when purchasing replacement contact lenses at participating optical centers, the greatest savings and selection for contact lenses is often offered through the mail order program. Replacement contact lenses are discounted at 10% to 40% below retail.
Q. Can I purchase disposable contact lenses at a discount through a participating optical center?
A. No. Disposable lenses are generally priced as "loss leaders" at the retail stores. However, members can use the mail order contact lens program to receive discounts when ordering disposable lenses.
Q. What if my contact lenses are destroyed while I'm on vacation?
A. Simply call the toll-free number on the back of your membership card. The patient registration keeps your prescription on file until it expires and we can send your replacements overnight to you almost anywhere in the world.
Q. What is LASIK?
A. LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is an outpatient treatment that uses an Excimer Laser (cool beam of light) to gently reshape the front surface of the eye (the cornea). Reshaping the cornea redirects the light angle as it enters the eye to refocus correctly on the retina. This allows images to be more sharply focused. Vision recovery is rapid, and there is little or no post-operative pain. With refractive procedures, your dependence upon glasses and contact lenses should diminish significantly.
Q. Can LASIK be done if I have astigmatism?
A. Yes, the LASIK procedure has been approved to effectively treat astigmatism as well as myopia (nearsightedness) and hyperopia (farsightedness).

“My glasses normally cost me $385 a pair. They are executive size, hinged frame, scratch resistant plastic lens bifocals. With my discount card, the exact same pair of glasses cost me $150-- a $235 savings!”
Robert R., CA
“I picked out some new frames (flexible) and they worked up pricing with progressive bifocals scratch resistance, etc. and it came to $424. When I showed my card she refigured the price and the glasses went from $424 to $219. Nice benefit!”
Raul L., FL
“I took my five-year-old daughter to Texas State Optical (TSO) and priced a pair of glasses. She requires a special lens for one eye. My concern was the special lens would drive up the cost for the glasses. Well you cannot imagine how pleasantly surprised I was when the lady at TSO told me that with the Vision benefit card, I would save over $90.”
Amy S., TX
“I just wanted to express how impressed we are with the quality of providers and service connected to your discount card. I am happy to say we will continue to renew our discount card every year.”
Lisa H., TX
“About 2 weeks ago, I needed to have my eyes examined so I could reorder new contact lens. So I went to my optometrist at LensCrafters for my eye examination. The new lens for a 6 month supply is $280; I was in shock. I am use to paying around $135 for a 6 month supply. My price [with my discount card] was $76 for a 6 month supply.”
Steven R., FL
“By using the discount card, I saved nearly half of the total expense for my prescription eye glasses. The eye exam fee plus the cost of two pairs of frames and lenses totaled nearly $600. With the discount program, my total was less than $350. Basically, I was able to get the second pair of glasses for free.”
Darryll L., MO
“I just bought a new pair of glasses at Pearle Vision and saved $160, 30% off the total.”
Don H., TX
“A customer priced her glasses (that are not covered by insurance) and found out she will save $95 on the glasses by using the discount card. One use more than pays for itself.”
Allison M., GA
“My youngest daughter had a vision appointment. After everything was done, the eye exam with the lens and frames added up to a total cost of $178 with my insurance. When I asked if they accepted my discount, which they did, it cut my cost to $98-- that's a savings of $80. So with just one visit to the eye doctor, I already saved what it cost to buy the card.”
Tullison H., AZ
“I have good health insurance, but it does not include Vision. During a regular visit to my eye doctor with my daughters, I asked how the Discount Card could help out. I saved $212 on one pair of frames and lenses. I am already way ahead!”

Savings of 10% to 30% on eye exams and surgical procedures, including LASIK where available. Through QualSight LASIK, you may save 40% to 50% off the overall national average on LASIK surgery (PRK and CK available at select locations).
We contract with ophthalmologists (M.D.s) in selected markets across the country to provide you with discounts on eyeglasses, contact lenses, eye exams, and surgical procedures (including PRK and LASIK surgery) where available. If there is not an ophthalmologist in your area, you may give the doctor's name, address, and phone number to our representative and your doctor will be invited to join the program.
In keeping with our tradition of utilizing both chain and independent providers, we contract with national chains of laser surgery centers to provide discounts on refractive laser surgery. In addition, we contract with independent ophthalmologists who also provide discounts on refractive surgery.
Payment must be made at the time of service in order to receive a discount.
