They are two different types of savings accounts (usually offered by your employer) that allow you to set money aside to pay for eligible health expenses, including prescription eyeglasses, prescription sunglasses, and even prescription goggles.
An FSA (Flexible Spending Account) is a "use it or lose it" plan from January 1 to December 31. You need to use the funds from it by the end of the year or lose it. Buying prescription glasses at ABBE Glasses is a great way to use FSA funds.
An HSA (Health Savings Account) money can be rolled over indefinitely and can even be used for medical expenses in retirement.
It is possible. You can choose to contribute to both a Health Savings Account and a limited purpose Flexible Spending Account or a combined FSA, such as a Flexible Spending Account that covers only vision and dental expenses; this will not affect your HSA.
The primary function of anti-blue light glasses is to filter harmful blue light to protect the eyes from damage. Most providers of FSAs or HSAs support their use for the purchase of anti-blue light glasses. Just in case, you can check with the provider of your account.
Although sunglasses play a role in filtering glare to protect the eyes, non-prescription sunglasses are not included in the FSA or HSA. However, you can use them to purchase prescription sunglasses is no problem at all.
Most FSA or HSA will offer a physical debit card, so you can pay at ABBE Glasses as if you were using a regular credit card. However, if you do not have a debit card, don't hesitate to contact our customer service in advance. After your order is finished, we will provide you with a receipt for your order to submit to your account provider with the other required documents.
