Vision disorders are the most common disability among children.
Over 500,000 children are blind or visually impaired the U.S.
The average insurance coverage in the United States leaves families paying for:
80-100% of medical vision aids and devices costs
100% of low vision aids and devices costs
20% of surgery and doctor office costs
100% of prescription costs
The out-of-pocket expenses for prescriptions, aids, and devices for a child with significant visual impairments are approximately $35,000 per year.
Costs for the family can exceed $100,000 per surgery.
Visual impairments and blindness in children are considered pre-existing conditions, so many times insurance premiums are simply unaffordable. Approximately 114,000 children with significant visual impairments are uninsured in the United States.
