FLEXIBLE SPENDING ACCOUNTS & HOW TO USE THEM

Flexible spending accounts or and FSA is a great way to pay for LASIK surgery. FSA is an employee benefit program that lets you put money away, on a pre-tax basis, for certain health care and dependent care expenses. This is a great way to save money on medicle expenditures throughout the year. Employees benefit by not having to pay income or social security taxes on the money set aside in their FSA. Employees can see savings on average from between 10 and 35%. Any money left in the FSA by years end will be forfeited to the business.

START THE HOLIDAYS OFF RIGHT

The snow is falling and that means the holiday season is right around the corner.  Family, food, decorating, and shopping are a few of the many things that make this time of year exciting and VERY busy.  This is the perfect opportunity to take some time before the holiday craziness begins and do something for yourself, something that is sure to make the holidays a little easier.  Of course we are talking about LASIK vision correction.

School and Vision

 A recent report shows that more than 10 million children (one in four) in the United States will go back to school this fall with an undetected vision problem. Despite this disturbing figure, a survey released by the Vision Council of America (VCA) found that only 6% of parents recognize that vision problems can lead to difficulties in school.  Much of what children learn in school is visual so it is imperative that a yearly eye exam is performed by a qualified physician.
