Need a new pair of glasses for the kids? Thinking your prescription has changed? Considering Lasik? The season has arrived to take care of your eye and vision needs. As the year's end comes near, so does the end of your flex spending dollars. If you aren't familiar with the term you may not be signed up for an FSA (or flex spending account) but you should confirm your benefits to clarify.
If you have a Flex Spending Account through a work benefits check how much credit you have left. Most FSA's require you to spend any money you've contributed before January 1st or risk losing it for good!
You can use your flex spending dollars to get big savings on your optometry necessities. Comprehensive eye exams, eyeglasses, contact lenses, even laser surgery may all meet the requirements for repayment. Be aware that some procedures, such as Lasik require advanced screening which takes time so book an optometry visit sooner than later.
