Are you due for your annual eye exam? Book it before your flex spending expires.
Eye exams assess vision. Exams detect eye disorders like eye strain, dry eye, and color blindness. Eye exams can also detect eye diseases like glaucoma. Though not considered an eye disease, diabetes is often detected with an eye exam.
A lens prescription caters to the unique needs of an individual. Bluelight lenses are popular even for those with 20/20 vision. That’s because these lenses ease eye strain on computers, phones, and other digital devices. The percentage of a prescription lens can vary in increments of quarter diopters (from -0.25 to 5.00+) to accommodate vision needs.
Contact lenses are also a popular purchase with flex spend. Opt for overnight, daily disposable, or toric. Contacts can also ease bluelight. Plus, they can be customized to meet a preferred eye color.
Dry eyes are particularly prevalent in the winter. So it’s a perfect way to use your flex spend just before January. Dry eye stems from your internal environment, like an HVAC system, and external environment, like a cold wind. Dry eyes may also be a symptom of allergies.
