Need a new pair of eye glasses? Think it's time for an eye exam? Contemplating refractive surgery? The season has arrived to take care of all of your eye care needs. As the year's end advances, so does the end of your flex spending credits. If you aren't familiar with the term you likely don't have an FSA (or flex spending account) but you should confirm your benefits to make sure.
If you participate in an FSA through a work benefits program be sure to plan ahead. The majority of FSA's obligate you to spend any money you've contributed before the new year or risk losing it for good!
You can use your FSA to get big savings on your optometry necessities. Comprehensive eye exams, eyeglasses, contact lenses, even laser surgery may all qualify for repayment. Keep in mind that some procedures, such as Lasik require a screening process that takes time so call for your appointment sooner than later.
