Using your Flex Plan is a great way to get LASIK and fulfill a New Year’s resolution for self improvement-like eliminating the hassle of eyeglasses and contacts for seeing clearly at distance. January and February are popular months for New Year’s resolutions which often include LASIK. If you or a family member has Flex Plan funds to use, this is a good time to make LASIK affordable. Many employers offer Flex Plans-Flexible Spending Accounts or FSA’s. These plans allow you to have money taken out of your paycheck over time to pay for LASIK. What is even more appealing about Flex Plans is that money is withheld in Pre-Tax dollars allowing you to get extra tax savings.
