Why You Should Use Your Flex Spending Account Now

You’ve been a great saver all year long, setting money aside in your Flex Spending Account (FSA) for when you need it later. But what if that need never arises? Well that’s great, except you could be out that money you set aside!

FSAs feature a Use It or Lose It provision which generally requires that you use the entire amount you set aside within a 12 to 15 month period. If you don’t, you forfeit the funds.

By now you’re probably saying to yourself “I don’t want to forfeit my money!” and we don’t blame you. But don’t worry, we have good news for you. You can use your FSA funds for vision care. So now is the perfect time to schedule an eye exam and get your vision in check.

Call any of our four locations for a convenient appointment, available 6 days a week with evening appointments available:

Albany: 518-489-8476

Clifton Park: 518-373-0003

Delmar: 518-439-6309

Good Vision is Critical to Success in the Classroom

Back to School season is here! Summer is winding down and the first day of school will be here before you know it. Your school supplies list probably includes things like two-pocket folders, pencils and three-ring binders. But does it include an eye exam?

Being able to see the board in the classroom is crucial to student success. This goes for students of all ages, from kindergarten to college. Not being able to see the board well can lead to serious struggles and falling grades.

Before the school year begins, it is an excellent idea to bring your child in for an eye exam to evaluate their vision and see if they are in need of new eyewear or a change in prescription. Take a little time out of your end of summer schedule now to set your student up for success all school year long.

Call us today to schedule your child’s back to school eye exam at any one of our four locations. Days, evenings, and Saturday appointments are available!
