Flexible Spending Account - Are designer eyeglasses covered?
Designer Eyeglasses and a Flexible Spending Account
One item that people consistently buy to spend down their Flexible Spending Account (FSA) funds are eyeglasses. It's no surprise to see people at the store scrambling to buy new glasses, or refilling their contact lens solution. This is especially true when the end of the FSA plan year approaches.
Designer eyeglasses are covered with a Flexible Spending Accountas long as you are getting prescription glasses. Eye care items must be used toward vision correction, or for specific medical purposes to qualify for FSA reimbursement.
Sorry - that means regular sunglasses would not be covered by your FSA.
