Costco membership comes with an unending list of benefits. From discounts on everything from gasoline and hot dogs to tropical cruises, it's no wonder the big-box store has more than 92.2 million card-holding members worldwide.

But not many people seem to take advantage of one of Costco's best benefits: eye care. If you haven't investigated the optical department, do yourself a favor and check it out the next time you're there.

In addition to accepting most insurance, Costco Optical offers affordable (about $70) annual exams for uninsured members. Almost every store's optical department is staffed by a licensed optometrist and a knowledgeable team, and carries a wide range of contact lenses, brand-name designer frames, as well as the latest technology in high-definition lenses.
