Most FSA plans expire on December 31st. Some companies allow employees to defer spending for a few additional months and others even allow for some portion of the benefit to be rolled over into a new year. But by and large, Flexible Spending Accounts are a use-it-or-lose-it proposition, meaning now is the best time to schedule that elective eye surgery you’ve been considering.

Many FSA plans cover LASIK, PRK, and even refractive lens exchange. The new SMILE procedure may also be covered by your FSA, but acting now is important to ensure you don’t lose your benefits. If you have been considering laser vision correction or any other elective vision enhancement procedure, use the contact form on this page or call us today to schedule your initial consultation and learn about the options available to you.

Financing Your Vision Correction Procedure

If you do not have an FSA, there is no need to worry. We offer a range of financing options that can help make lasting vision correction a reality, in many cases helping to reduce your reliance on prescription eyewear for life. We accept most major credit cards, which is a good solution for some patients, but also work with financing companies that specifically provide solutions for people interested in healthcare treatments not covered by insurance.

Companies we work with include:

  • CareCredit®, a healthcare financer that offers competitive rates including 0% APR and low, fixed monthly payments with a variety of terms and repayment options
  • ALPHAEON® Credit, a company that offers several repayment options including 0% APR along with various promotional options to help meet the unique needs of each patient

If you are considering vision correction surgery, we will be happy to provide additional information about these and other financing and payment options during your initial consultation.
