Davis Vision's "Eyecare Reframed" system provides a superior customer experience,  as a result of the fact that Davis Vision's buying power comes from direct end-to-end management of the process, starting with eyewear fabrication which enables Davis to provide a more progressive low-to-no out of pocket offering through a proprietary eyewear collection, and through their retail arm at Visionworks.

"After 25 years on the health care side of the industry, said Davis Vision president Celina Burns,  I joined Davis Vision precisely because of its distinctly unique and wholly controlled integrated delivery system which doesn't exist elsewhere in the market today. What was additionally appealing was the fact that despite Davis Vision being the third largest vision plan offering available, we are own best kept secret!  Our new campaign is designed to better educate employers about the breadth of value and choice available through Davis Vision. In summary the efficiencies garnered through our collective lab and frame design capability alone translate into an unparalleled suite of options, to include using an allowance for the members frames of choice through any participating provider. We are additionally in the process of packaging additional product offering(s) to take the member out-of-pocket experience to an even greater level of savings."

Burns also noted that in the current health reform environment there is a defined contribution movement underway that is translating into higher cost share and decision making responsibility for consumers. This trend is driving a significant interest by employers and members in understanding the true value and cost in all facets of health care, including vision. Because of our platform and end-to-end delivery capability we believe we have the highest value and choice offering in the industry. We understand the demand for transparency, and will be taking a lead position in educating consumers on the true eyewear and eyecare value and cost components through our reconstructed web site*.
