FLEX PLANS AND LASIK By Dr. Martha Jay, Ophthalmologist at Lakeshore Eye Care Professionals with offices in Mequon & Saukville, Wisconsin
Did you just spend another summer annoyed with your contacts and glasses? Have you been considering LASIK but are not sure how to fit it into your budget? If that sounds like you, don’t overlook the savings offered by Flexible Spending or Health Savings Accounts. While not part of all benefit packages, many employers do provide this option to utilize pre-tax income for medical procedures such as LASIK. The rules vary but most plans require a Fall commitment for the following year. Check with your Human Resources Officer to determine your specific deadline.
Even if one of these plans is not an option for you, LASIK actually saves you money compared to staying in contacts and glasses. You may not realize it but those expenses add up: If you are now 30 years-old and wear 2 week disposable contacts, you can expect to spend $21,900 over the rest of your life on contacts, glasses and solutions!
Most, but not all people are good candidates for blade-free LASIK. That’s why a LASIK screening exam is critical before committing Flex funds for coming year. This complimentary evaluation involves critical measurements of your vision and your eyes to determine if LASIK is right for you. You’ll learn a lot about LASIK and have a chance to get acquainted with our great team at Lakeshore Eye Care.
Improve your outlook on life in 2017 by calling today to arrange your no-pressure LASIK screening exam. See you soon.
