SAN RAMON, Calif., July 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — People take pride in their appearance, and few accessories help to define appearance more than the frames for prescription glasses. Choosing frames is a major part of the process of getting glasses. Using dilated pupils to choose what pair looks best is part of the adventure of the optometrist. But how a person looks in their frames is only the cosmetic issue of the situation. The really important aspect is the actual job of the glasses: to help a person see better, not to make a person look better. Financial Education Benefits Center (FEBC), a membership benefits company, offers a variety of health and financial wellness resources that include savings on vision services, which may help a person get the exact frames they desire. However, these benefits are not meant to replace insurance and should not be used as such.
