Family Medical History May Mean Needing to Take Extra Care of Vision, but FEBC Hopes to Help Make That More Affordable

PR Newswire

SAN RAMON, Calif., Sept. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Taking proper care of one's eyesight is a necessary part of a healthy life, especially if someone has a family medical history of ocular diseases. But doctor visits can be expensive, and people might put them off as a result. Financial Education Benefits Center (FEBC), a membership benefits company, provides members with select, relevant discounts for their needs, which luckily include discounts for participating ophthalmologists.

"Physical health is important, and that includes someone's eyes. We rely on our eyes for so much, sometimes to the point of straining them," said Jennifer Martinez, manager at FEBC. Straining eyes, like with too much screen time, on top of a predisposition for eye problems, might lead to some visual trouble later on in an individual's life. Visual diseases like glaucoma can damage eyesight and may not be treatable. Glaucoma treatment, in particular, only slows the disease progress, and cannot cure it. With how much trouble it causes, including not just vision damage but also potentially nausea and migraines, and being hereditary, early diagnosis by a professional is all the more important.

Professional visits can be expensive though, which is where FEBC comes in with its membership discounts. Being able to attend doctor's visits regularly greatly increases the chance of catching visual problems early, and taking the steps to either correct and halt damage being done. With FEBC's health and wellness benefits package, members can look forward to select vision care discounts and access to a professional 24-hour nurse hotline. These benefits are not meant to act as or replace insurance, and the hotline is not for emergency situations, but to provide extra peace of mind about personal wellness. "FEBC was created for the betterment of members lives, and to help them achieve all-around personal and financial wellness," said Martinez.
