Corporate Vision Discounts Making Corrective Surgery More Affordable
Medical providers, like New York City Ophthalmologist Doctor Ilan Cohen, are partnering with

(PRWEB) -- Manhattan's Fifth Avenue Eye Center announces Corporate Vision Discount to assist companies in

With health insurance expenses fast becoming the greatest cost component for employers, companies are looking

vision correction options are becoming common-place procedures, and patients are looking for more ways to pay
for those surgeries”.

dollars from the procedure, at no cost to the company or employee. “With programs like these we're hoping to
give patients more affordable, accessible options for the vision correction t
