COLUMBIA, S.C. -- January 23, 2013

Workers nationwide now have more convenient access to affordable vision
insurance, thanks to a new partnership between Colonial Life & Accident
Insurance Company and Superior Vision. The partnership enables Colonial Life
to enrich its benefits offering to employer groups across all industry
segments.

The vision insurance includes comprehensive eye exams, eyeglass frame and
lenses, contact lenses, a contact lens fitting exam and discounts on
additional glasses and contacts. Employer groups may choose a full benefits
package or a plan that includes glasses and contacts without the exam.
Superior Vision has an industry-leading provider network of more than 48,000
ophthalmologists, optometrists, opticians, and regional and national retail
chain locations, including LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Wal-Mart Vision
Centers, Target Optical, Sam’s Club, America’s Best and Visionworks. Employees
can sign up for the vision plan as part of their regular workplace benefits
enrollment and can pay premiums through convenient payroll deduction.

The vision coverage is a perfect fit with the voluntary financial protection
benefits Colonial Life already offers, according to Amy Criswell, director of
marketing programs for Colonial Life. “Vision coverage is an important
employee benefit,” Criswell said. “Offering this coverage through the
workplace allows employees to meet their needs, and those of their families,
affordably and conveniently.”

“Our partnership with Colonial Life is a natural fit for us and showcases the
similarities in values and business practices between our two companies,” said
Rick Corbett, president and CEO of Superior Vision. “People want quality care
coupled with convenient locations and service hours. Superior Vision has one
of the country’s largest and most diverse provider networks, and shares
Colonial Life’s focus on excellent customer service.”

Superior Vision has been in the managed vision care market for 20 years and
serves millions of members and thousands of clients nationwide.

Other benefits of the vision plan employees may receive include:

  *Discounts on many lens upgrades and additional pairs of glasses and
    contacts
  *Online ordering and home delivery of most major brands of contact lenses
  *Information and help on Superior Vision’s website
