Food (for thought) that Won’t Make Your Pants Fit Tighter This Holiday Season
December is bustling with all the things that make the holiday season the most wonderful time of the year. But Christmas songs aside, there are a few things worth considering while in the midst of gift shopping and holiday gatherings with friends and family.
Use ‘em Before You Lose ‘em.
We’re not talking about teeth here. We’re talking about vision care benefits and flex plan benefits through your employer. Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) are employer-sponsored programs that allow you to put aside pre-tax dollars for out-of-pocket medical expenses. With the right planning, you can use your FSA to contribute to the cost of your vision improvements with Eye Medical Clinic just before the end of the year.
Pro tip: FSAs are voluntary programs, and not all employers offer them. If your employer offers an FSA, you will have the option to enroll at the beginning of the plan year, which is typically January 1. At that time, you must commit to an amount of money to be taken out of each paycheck and placed in your FSA. You will not pay taxes on this money. The only downside is that if you do not use this money by the end of the plan year, you may have to forfeit it.
Reach for 20/20 in 2020.
An annual comprehensive eye exam is important for everyone, no matter how young or old. Here at Eye Medical Clinic in San Jose, we can take care of your eyes in every season of life. From a new pair of glasses to ring in the New Year in style to contact lenses for a new look in 2020, we’ve got you covered.
Our comprehensive eye exam includes so much more than determining if a prescription is needed for eyeglasses or contact lenses. We will also check the eyes for any eye disease, assess how they work together as a team and evaluate the eyes as an indicator of overall health.
Invest in Yourself
Drooping eyelids can interfere with vision and make for tired-looking, aged eyes. At Eye Medical Clinic, we offer a unique approach to eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) that can restore a bright-eyed, youthful appearance. Performed by our very own Dr. John Sullivan, a board-certified ophthalmologist with vast experience in cataract, reconstructive, cosmetic and plastic surgery, he’s helped countless people just like you achieve an open-eyed, refreshed look. Schedule an initial consultation today with the experts at Eye Medical Clinic. We will share all of our eye-opening options to give you a clear idea of what will benefit your vision and lifestyle.
