The world of health savings accounts (HSAs) and flexible spending accounts (FSAs) can be confusing, but they’re important and can make medical care more affordable. If you have questions like, “what can you use HSA for?” and “can you use FSA for LASIK?” - keep reading. Here are five ways to use your health savings account or flexible spending account for eye care this year.
1. Eye Exams
If you’ve been putting off your annual eye exams because you’re worried about costs, delay no longer. These appointments can absolutely be paid for with your HSA or FSA. Ideally, you should plan to schedule an eye exam every year so you can stay on top of your vision and overall eye health.
2. Prescription Glasses
Do you need glasses? Or do you already have some, but the prescription just isn’t doing it for you like it used to? Either way, consider using your HSA or FSA to pay for new glasses that get the job done. Your vision is worth it.
3. Prescription Sunglasses
Don’t forget that clear eyeglasses aren’t the only time that prescription lenses can come in handy. Prescription sunglasses can be incredibly helpful in keeping your eyes protected from UV rays while simultaneously boosting your vision. Check out Horizon Optical for a wide variety of designer shades that can suit any style or budget.
Do contacts suit your lifestyle better than glasses? Schedule a consultation and get started seeing more clearly right away by getting contact lenses. The contact lenses themselves as well as contact lens care supplies, like solution, eye drops and cases, also qualify to be purchased by HSA and FSA.
Last, but certainly not least, LASIK eye surgery is eligible to be funded by your HSA or FSA. This safe, proven and effective vision correction procedure can improve your vision and your quality of life for many years to come. Schedule a consultation to see if you’re a candidate, and get started on the path toward clear sight without contacts or glasses.
