- The completed Eyewear Order Form and the Credit Card Charge Authorization Form (page 2 of the Eyewear Order Form PDF)
The Credit Card Charge Authorization Form must be faxed to the lab along with the order form. The order cannot be processed without this information. Credit card information is not retained after it is processed.
What does the eyewear cost?
The Eyewear Order Form includes a list of eyewear options and costs.
There is a $30 dispensing fee.
Your eyecare provider may collect exam fees from the retiree/family member and/or insurance, if applicable.
How will the eyewear be ordered and shipped?
Your eyecare provider will order the eyewear and receive the completed product. You may make pickup arrangements with the provider.
Alliant Energy and Essilor strongly recommend the use of polycarbonate lenses for the best protection.
Standard plastic and glass lenses are "Basic Impact Rated" protection only and do not meet the "High Impact Rated" requirements of ANSI Z87.1-2010.
Work with your eyecare provider to properly fit the eyewear.
