Vision

VMware offers vision coverage through the Vision Service Plan (VSP). There are two plans to choose from: Core and Buy-Up. The Buy-Up Plan offers a higher level of benefits for lenses, contacts and frames. The Vision Service Plan (VSP) network of providers includes both optometrists and ophthalmologists. To see if your vision provider is in-network, visit VSP find a doctor [1].
