But don’t let the year expire without using your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) dollars. Often sponsored as part of a corporate benefits package, an FSA plan allows employees to contribute pre-tax dollars to pay for out-of-pocket health care expenses — including deductibles, copayments and other qualified medical, dental or vision expenses not covered by the individual’s health insurance plan. The plans are often set up as “use it or lose it,” meaning any left over funds would default back to the employer after Dec. 31.
You might already know prescription eyeglasses are covered as an FSA expense, but did you know prescription sunglasses, like the premium polarized styles Costa makes, are also included as a qualifying benefit?
Costa’s prescription sunglasses help protect your eyes from harmful reflected glare and UV rays, while Costa’s 580 lens technology selectively filters out harsh yellow and harmful high-energy ultraviolet blue light. Filtering yellow light enhances reds, blues and greens, and produces better contrast and definition while reducing glare and eye fatigue. Absorbing high-energy blue light cuts haze, producing greater visual clarity and sharpness.
All of Costa’s prescription sunglasses are custom made in its state-of-the-art optical lab in its Daytona Beach, Fla. headquarters location. Each pair comes with a two-year warranty against manufacturer’s defects.
Don’t let 2015 run out without checking your FSA benefit level. Then visit your local authorized Costa optical retailer to find the prescription sunglasses that are right for you.
