Blue-Light Blocking Technology Added to Vision

Aug 03, 2016

To address increasing concerns about blue light emitted from technology such as smart phones, laptops, tablets, and the effects these may have on users’ health including their vision, UnitedHealthcare vision has added blue light-blocking technology to the anti-reflective lens options category. As a part of our commitment to overall wellness for its members, beginning July 1, 2016, two anti-reflective lens options are available under the "Platinum" category to help protect against blue light.

Platinum anti-reflective coatings are included in the UnitedHealthcare lens options available for a price-protected amount to UnitedHealthcare vision members. UnitedHealthcare's current price protection within the anti-reflective formulary may save members up to 40 percent. As a reminder, not all plans include lens options or materials coverage, and price protections may only apply at certain locations. 

A UnitedHealthcare​ vision member educ​ational flyer is available to help you communicate to your customers and their employees the effects that blue light may have on a person's eyes. The Anti-reflective Coating Fo​rmulary List has also been updated with the two new options available under the anti-reflective lens options category:
