FSA Q&A: Are Ophthalmologists covered by an FSA?

It might not be something we think about every day, but a healthy vision plays a role in many daily activities. It matters when you drive to work, read a book, write extensively for work, or have a job that requires perfect eyesight.

July highlights Eye Injury Prevention Month. Each day there are a reported 2,000+ cases of eye injuries, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Preventing these injuries involves monitoring eye health. Maintaining eye health isn’t relevant to just one specific age group, but rather it falls across all ages.

Are opthalmologists FSA eligible?

Yes, you can use your Flexible Spending Account towards a visit with an ophthalmologist. Checking in with an ophthalmologist for a simple exam is highly recommended. Procedures covered by your FSA include routine eye exams, corrective surgery such as LASIK, and prescription glasses.

Find a local ophthalmologist via FSA Eligible Services or shop for these FSA eligible eye care products to keep your eyes healthy.


3 Eye Health Tips

Aside from a checkup with your eye care professional, check out these eye health tips from Get Eye Smart (the American Academy of Ophthalmology).

  1. Reduce/quit smoking. Smoking could increase the chance of developing heart disease. Not smoking lowers your chances of developing vision loss.
  2. Exercise frequently to increase oxygen intake and blood circulation which help eyesight as well.
  3. Get enough sleep. During sleep, our eyes cleanse out dust and allergens that we’re exposed to throughout the day.
