    anyone ever try to go through the insurance. I thought I read that we aren't able to get coverage for this. Just wondering.

    They don't cover it. Davis Vision is such a huge joke, I hate them...I'm always searching for a new optometrist/optician because nobody wants to partner with them for very long. I'm seriously thinking of dropping my eyecare coverage completely and just paying out of pocket whenever I need optical services.

    It has nothing to do with DavisVision. Lasik is elective, I have never heard of any insurance company covering it. I had Lasik back in 2004 and my wife had it last year. We both paid out of pocket for it. Neither one of us regrets it for a second.

    My wife had it, too, and we paid out of pocket. BUT, DavisVision still sucks!

    I had RK (pre-cursor to LASIK) and it was well worth the $ for me too...many years I went corrective lens-free. It was great. Unfortunately it still doesn't stave off the ravages of time and I'm back to correctives again.

    and yes, Davis Vision still sucks!

    If you mean reading glasses....Lasik can't correct that.

    initially it was reading glasses, but now it's progressive lenses. I can't see things near and I can't see things far - but things in mid-range are fine. It just really sucks moving into old geezer-hood.

    Single truest statement ever made here. All these young firebrands will get it one of these days. Hard to get excited about a union when you feel yourself falling apart.

    Davis is so bad that the majority of providers won't accept it. I had one optometrist tell me he was only accepting it for a year in order to build his practice. Worst coverage out there.

    yep, and for those few providers who do accept it, ya always feel like it's some dirty little secret. "oh you can't have any of these nice frames you see out on display here" they say, and then they motion you over to a secluded dimly lit corner where they open up a bottom drawer and in a low whisper say "here's the DavisVision crap - knock yourself out, fool"...The selection is always so horrid that I always opt for the store frames and use the $125 credit or whatever it is we get towards them.

    But your benefits are so great! I'm confused...

    We know you are. Tell us something we don't know.

    It's been a looong time since I've thought our benefits were great

    Last time I had my eyes checked last year, the doctor told me that I should just buy the cheaters from the pharmacy, because they're a lot better than anything DavisVision will pay for!

    My daughter referred to the Davis frame selection as the "welfare rack".

    and spot-on accurate she is too, as that's exactly how I feel about it...I find myself looking down at the floor and whispering "Davis Vision" whenever I'm asked who my insurance is with. They always seem to be trying desperately to stifle an eyeroll and a sneer. It's so obvious no one wants to deal with them.
