Looking for new eye glasses for the kids? Time for an eye examination? Considering Lasik? Now is the time to save big on your eye and vision needs. As the end of the year approaches, so does the end of your flex spending credits. If you don't know what "flex plan" means you probably don't have an FSA (or flex spending account) but you might want to verify your insurance plan to clarify.
If you have an FSA with your employee benefits be sure to plan ahead. Most plans obligate you to spend all contributions by the last day of December or risk losing it for good!
You can use your FSA to really save on your optometry necessities. Eye and contact lens exams, eyeglasses, contact lenses, even laser surgery may all be eligible for repayment. Just keep in mind that some procedures, such as Lasik require advanced screening which could cause a delay so call for your optometry visit as soon as possible.
