FAQ: Can I use my FSA/HSA on non-prescription glasses?
Over-the-counter glasses and sunglasses that do not require a prescription are not covered under a flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA) plan.
To be eligible for reimbursement, a prescription must be provided by an eye doctor, and the glasses or sunglasses must be used to correct vision problems and/or be designed to treat a specific medical condition. Find an eye doctor near you to get the most up-to-date prescription.
However, non-prescription reading eyeglasses are eligible for reimbursement under an FSA and HSA. They are not covered under dependent-care plans.
Eligible vision products include:
Prescription and non-prescription reading glasses
Contact lenses - Eye care co-pays and deductibles
Routine eye exams
Make sure you check with your account administrator on what is covered under your company’s FSA and HSA policies to verify what is eligible for reimbursement.
