Austin, TX, December 05, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The eyewear specialists at FramesDirect.com announced that they are helping patients purchase prescription sunglasses, eyeglasses, and contact lenses through their Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) in order to beat the 12/31/12 deadline. FSA participants who do not use the money in their accounts before the deadline are at risk of losing it all.
“Many people do not know that prescription sunglasses, eyeglasses with or without lenses, contact lenses, and some sunglasses are eligible expenses in a Flex Spending Account,” states FramesDirect.com Co-founder, Dr. Dhavid Cooper. “We make it easy for people to use their FSA funds to purchase prescription eyewear anytime, anywhere simply by using their FSA debit card, or Flex Card, at www.framesdirect.com.”
Those with FSAs typically place a certain amount of money aside each year to cover healthcare expenses. Unlike Health Savings Accounts, the coverage period for an FSA is usually the calendar year ending December 31st, with some employers offering a grace period from January through March 15th.
Why Buy Prescription Sunglasses, Eyeglasses and Contact Lenses Now?
• Use remaining FSA funds to see more clearly with an updated prescription that fits current vision needs;
• Rest easy knowing there is a back-up pair of eyeglasses for school, the office, the car, or emergencies;
• Save time and money purchasing a year’s supply of contact lenses for 2013 in advance; and
• Get expert advice from opticians for the perfect-fitting eyewear without leaving home.
“Instead of losing your FSA funds at the end of the year, why not use this money to see and look better with the perfect eyewear in the latest, designer brands and styles?,” states Clotilde Bedoya FramesDirect.com Marketing Manager. “Simply log on to FramesDirect.com at any time, choose from over 100,000 authentic, name-brand eyewear products, make a purchase with your Flex Card, and keep your invoice as a record for your spending-account provider.
