What is an FSA?

An FSA, or Flexible Spending Account, is an account you can use to pay for certain out-of-pocket health care costs. The income in an FSA is pre-taxed, meaning you won’t pay any taxes on it, and you’ll save an amount equal to the taxes you would have paid on the money set aside.

An FSA may be part of the benefits package you receive from your employer, and they may contribute to it, though it’s not a requirement. There is a limitation on your FSA, which usually changes annually, depending on inflation. However, with an FSA, you can pay for certain medical expenses, including prescriptions, supplies, devices, and medical procedures that insurance may not cover.

Use Your FSA to Pay for Procedures like ZEISS SMILE, LASIK, and EVO ICL

One of the best ways to use an FSA is if you’re considering a vision correction procedure like LASIK, ZEISS SMILE, or EVO ICL. These procedures are an excellent way to change your life and finally say goodbye to your contact lenses.

However, one of the primary things that can hold potential patients back from these procedures is their cost. But what if you could make these procedures more affordable?

With an FSA, much of the up-front cost is taken care of. Although an FSA is not likely to cover the total cost, you can reduce a lot of the burden associated with paying for one of these vision correction procedures. So how does correcting your vision beat contact lenses anyway?

Contact Lenses Only Take You So Far

Although contact lenses can help you see clearly, they still have some inevitable constraints. If you’re ready to see clearly without anything holding you back, it’s time to look into better options in the form of vision correction procedures.

Thanks to these procedures, you can live life how it was meant to be seen.

1.     Enjoy Better Vision

A life with contact lenses means depending on visual aids that may not be there for you when you need them most. If you want to go swimming, your contact lenses will likely get in your way.

Seeing clearly also becomes a problem, whether you’re staying out late with your friends or getting dust in your eye. If you wear dailies, your contact lenses shouldn’t stay in your eyes for more than 14 to 16 hours.

However, if you wear contacts, you may find that your eyes start feeling dry and uncomfortable after about 8 hours of wearing them. But when you correct your vision with a procedure like ZEISS SMILE, EVO ICL, or LASIK, you can enjoy better vision than contact lenses can provide you.

If you’re ready for 20/20 vision or better without contacts, these procedures will help you see in crisp, sharp clarity and improve your life and vision. Contact lenses may improve your vision but are a temporary fix at best.

Are you ready to say goodbye to contact lenses?

2.     Be More Spontaneous

When was the last time you booked a trip without thinking about its logistics? Wouldn’t it be great if you could go somewhere without having to order contact lenses in advance?

Or dealing with the hassles of packing enough spare contacts and your glasses for “just in case” something happens? When you get a vision correction procedure, say goodbye to these worries.

Instead, you can usher in a spontaneous way of traveling. Go where you want to go without thinking about how you’ll see or if you brought the essentials.

You’ll be able to go to beautiful places and enjoy every minute with the kind of vision you thought you could only dream of. If you blink, no problem, because it’s yours.

You’ll have greater depth perception, better clarity, and the ability to see the details that were once a blur. Whether you choose ZEISS SMILE, EVO ICL, or LASIK, it’s a choice that you’ll continue to love for years to come.

3.     Save Money for the Things that Count

Spending your money on glasses and contact lenses can add up quickly. These simple visual aids can cost you a lot, all in the name of making sure you can see.

But if you’re ready to save money, using your FSA to pay for a procedure like EVO ICL, LASIK, or ZEISS SMILE could be the solution you’ve been looking for. See, if you use your FSA, you can instantly reduce the overall cost of one of these procedures and ensure you’ll enjoy your new and improved vision.

On average, it costs most people about $500 annually to pay for glasses, contact lenses, and the accessories that go with them. Think about everything you could afford if you no longer had to worry about paying for visual aids.

Whether saving for your first home, planning on opening a Michelin-starred restaurant, or knowing that a rainy day is coming, having a little extra pocket money is never bad!

4.     Be a Better Athlete

Being an athlete is about seeing everything going on around you. But this is easier said than done if you rely on contact lenses.

How often have you been in the zone, and your contacts get too dry? Maybe you have to sit out the game until you can reposition your lens or switch to glasses.

By the time you return to the field, the moment has passed. What could have been simply never happens, and you always wonder if you could have gotten the goal.

You can finally reach your full potential after ZEISS SMILE, EVO ICL, or LASIK. Most patients end up with 20/20 vision or better, achieving improved depth perception, better contrast, and enhanced reaction times.

No matter what kind of athlete you are, having these advantages will work in your favor, on and off the field!
