At our core, UnitedHealthcare’s mission is to help people live healthier lives and make the health system work better for everyone. That is why we were thrilled last year when eyewear designer Warby Parker began to accept UnitedHealthcare vision plans, marking the first time ever Warby Parker accepted any insurance. This enabled millions of UnitedHealthcare vision plan participants to purchase prescription eyewear for only the price of their copay at Warby Parker online or at their retail locations.
Warby Parker is widely recognized for their designer styles and affordable prices, so this collaboration furthers the company’s goal of making it easy and fun to purchase prescription eyewear.
There is another reason why this collaboration made so much sense. Studies have shown that people prefer to buy products from socially responsible brands.
As a company, we fully support Warby Parker’s belief that everyone has the right to see. Almost 1 billion people worldwide lack access to glasses, which means that 15% of the world’s population cannot effectively learn or work. Eye health is important to overall well-being, as research has shown there is a connection between the health of our eyes and overall health. To help address this issue, Warby Parker ensures that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need through their “Buy a Pair, Give a Pair” program.
