Put FSA funds to good use on year-round eye care
Flexible Spending Account (FSA) holders know how vital these funds can be for unexpected medical expenses, but there are countless products you use on a daily basis that could qualify for real savings.
March is National Save Your Vision month. Whether you have 20/20 vision or wear contacts or corrective lenses, there are myriad items and services that you can take advantage of with your FSA funds.
Instead of paying out-of-pocket and additional taxes on items you use every day, take advantage of your employee benefits and tax-free funds that are available to you!
Here are few surprising FSA eligible products that you can pick up today from FSAstore.com!
Contact lens solutions
According to All About Vision, individuals who wear disposable contact lenses will spend an average of between $220 to $260 per year, plus an additional $150 on contact lens solution alone. That's a lot of money to spend annually on eye care, especially if you're paying taxes on each item! Use your FSA to purchase contact lens solution and other products throughout the year to cut your spending significantly.
Eyeglasses are already FSA eligible and that can take the sting out of a normally large investment, but many account holders are unaware that they can also purchase eyeglass accessories with their FSAs. Items like lens cleaning cloths, eyeglass repair kits and lens cleaner sprays are all covered by your FSA, so you can make sure that your current pair of spectacles lasts as long as possible.
The spring weather can wreak havoc on those who suffer from seasonal allergies. In particular, the heavy pollen levels in the air can irritate eyes, leaving them red and watery throughout much of early spring. If allergies are a concern for you, put your FSA funds toward anti-allergy eye washes and drops. These products can clear up your allergy symptoms, remove allergens from your eyes that contribute to your symptoms, and help you brave the spring months when pollen levels are at their highest.
So what are you waiting for? Stay on top of your eye care this spring and beyond by shopping at FSAstore.com and choosing one of our thousands of FSA-eligible products!
