The first purchase by the MVCC Professional Association Benefits Trust Fund was the NYSUT Group Vision Care Plan. The NYSUT Benefit Trust-endorsed provider and administrator of the Group Vision Care Plan is Davis Vision. Davis Vision is a union company and recipient of the New York State Excelsior Award for Total Quality Management. Our Benefits Fund trustees selected Davis Vision at a meeting on May 6, 2003. All bargaining unit members and their families are eligible for free annual comprehensive eye care services–eye exams, frames, and lenses–through participating providers. Members and their families will be covered under Davis Vision’s “Premier Platinum” plan. It includes the following:

  • a wide variety of frames
  • choice of glass or plastic lenses
  • all ranges of prescriptions including single vision, bifocal, trifocal, or lenticular
  • prescription sunglasses
  • standard progressive lenses
  • various coatings
  • one-year breakage warranty
  • fittings for contacts
  • up to four multi-packs of plan contact lenses per year.

A number of local optometrists participate in the plan, including all Empire Vision locations.
