The NAVCP hosts an annual conference typically in the spring, as well as webinars throughout the year. In November 2013, the organization sponsored an hour-long webinar summarizing presentations and conversations that occurred at a roundtable meeting with its medical directors. The webinar focused on the benefits of vision plans and how they relate to the Affordable Care Act.
Those who took part in the webinar learned that employees are spending more time at work, straining their eyes more due to increased use of digital devices. At the same time, economic struggles may cause employees to put off subscribing to vision care plans, and employers to eliminate vision care plans altogether. The webinar highlighted the benefits of participating in vision care plans, especially those that feature high-performance lenses.
