Thinking about Lasik Eye Surgery? Discounted programs are available for SBCSS employees/retirees and their current enrolled family members.

Your employer-sponsored vision plan with Medical Eye Services (MES), has an agreement with TLC Laser Eye Centers. This will allow employees and their enrolled dependents to save on Lasik procedures. The savings are off the usual and customary fee charged for Lasik when you have a Conventional or CustomLasik performed at a TruVision Advantage Network location.

To locate a TruVision Advantage Network location and for more information about Lasik procedures, please click on the following link: Schedule your free consultation at a location in California. Cost for this procedure is not covered by your medical or vision insurance plans. However, if you schedule the surgeries between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018, you may use monies from enrollment in the annual flexible spending account to pay on a pre-taxed basis. The flexible spending account enrollment (also known as FSA), has an annual open enrollment in May and June each year at various County Schools locations.

Employees enrolled in any Blue Shield HMO or PPO plans have additional options for Lasik surgeries. Discounts are with QualSight Lasik and Laser Eye Centers. To obtain information on locating a facilities and helpful information of the offers, log into your Blue Shield account at
