Vision insurance can be expensive. That's why some families forego it altogether.
Midwestern University Eye Institute has a free program called InfantSEE. Parents can have their infants' eyes checked at no cost. Students do the exams with supervision from faculty.
The Smart Shopper team paid a visit and found an excellent variety with some prescription eyeglasses for 40-percent off retail price!
The eye institute is basically a "one-stop optometry shop." Exam prices vary depending on the patient's need, in some cases they are more affordable than a traditional optometrist. It offers exams, pediatrics, low vision, contacts, prosthetics, sports vision, and a lot more all in the same building.
