FSA Eye Care Guide 

What Are FSA Eye Care Benefits? 

If your employer provides you with an FSA as part of your benefits package, you can use it for a variety of personal health care-related expenses. Eligible services include routine eye care like an eye exam or a pair of new prescription glasses. You may even be able to use it for dependents you claim on your taxes, like your children or spouse. Many FSAs allow you to extend the benefits to adult kids under 26 years of age.
