If you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), you’re ready to save on glasses and much more. FSAs let you set aside pre-tax money from your paycheck to cover health-related expenses.

When you pay for an eligible medical, dental or vision expense out of pocket, you can reimburse yourself from your account. It’s as easy as that!

Here are some eligible vision expenses your FSA covers, so you don’t miss an opportunity to save.
