FLEX PLANS & LASIK for 2020 By Dr. Martha Jay, Ophthalmologist at Madison Medical Eye Care with offices in Mequon & Saukville, Wisconsin
Another summer annoyed with contacts and glasses but worried how LASIK might fit your budget? If that sounds like you, don’t overlook the savings offered by Flexible Spending or Health Savings Accounts. While not a component 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/or 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!
Many but 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 meant for you. You’ll learn a lot about LASIK and have a chance to get acquainted with our great Madison Medical Eye Care team, now even better with the addition of Dr. Lisa Bennett.
Plan ahead to improve your outlook on life in 2020! Call today to arrange your free, no-pressure LASIK screening exam. It just might be that 2020 is your year for 20/20!
