Save up to 45% on LASIK with your Flexible Spending Account Plan

Save up to 45% on LASIKMany employers provide a Flexible Spending Account Plan that allows employees to pay for eligible medical expenses on a pre-tax basis. LASIK is one of those eligible procedures. The end result is that you decrease your taxable income and increase your spendable income – the first step to having amazing vision with great savings!

How it works

  • Enroll in your plan – You only have one opportunity a year to enroll. The amount you designate for the year is taken out of your paycheck in equal installments each pay period and placed in a special account by your employer.
  • Use pre-tax dollars – You don’t pay taxes on the money you put into your FSA and that can mean great savings for great eyesight with LASIK!
  • Save up to 45% Your savings will correlate to your tax bracket. The higher your tax bracket, the more you save. See examples below.
  • Are you a good LASIK candidate? You have to use your FSA dollars during the plan year, so you’ll want to know whether you are a good LASIK candidate before you put aside money in your FSA plan.
  • Schedule your free consultation today – The easiest way to determine whether you are a good candidate is to schedule your free, no obligation LASIK consultation today!

Call for a complimentary consultation or request a consultation appointment online.

How much can you save?

Saving on LASIK with an FSA can be significant.  In 2017, the maximum allowed contribution to your FSA is $2,600. Below are two examples of potential savings.  Your savings could be more if you are in a higher tax bracket.

The graphic below shows the savings you will receive if you are filing as Single status and contributing $2,600 to your FSA:

Federal Tax Bracket 15% 25%
CA State Tax Bracket 8% 9.3%
FICA Tax 7.65% 7.65%
TOTAL Tax 30.65% 41.95%
SAVINGS AMOUNT $797 $1,091

If you wish to double this savings, you can plan to have one eye corrected at the end of one year and the next eye corrected the beginning of the following year.  This way, you get to take advantage of the maximum allowable contributions for both years and have both eyes corrected within a short time frame.

*The examples shown above are for illustrative purposes only.  Please consult your tax advisor for specific information on your particular situation before setting aside your FSA dollars.

Health Savings Account (HSA) Alternative

If you have a “high deductible” Marketplace health insurance plan, you can set aside money on a pre-tax basis (similar to an FSA) to pay some health expenses such as LASIK and other laser eye surgeries.

Gotta pay my overdue Yelp gratitude here. Furlong has an all-star staff. Carol specifically is a wonderful human being and professional. They're prepared for every possible scenario. My story varies slightly from others in that I did experience bad halos/glares for roughly 2 weeks following surgery (which is...

Dr. Furlong was a recommendation from my optometrist. My first visit was fast and easy. My optometrist had already done my dilation so they just needed to take measurements and double check that I was a candidate. Everyone was very professional and friendly. I was nervous about everything but my patient counselor...

I recently had LASIK done with Dr. Furlong and it was an amazing experience. I wanted to have LASIK so that I could wake up first thing in the morning and not worry about contacts or glasses! As an optometrist myself I knew the ins and outs a little bit more but everything was on point! Their waiting room is always...

This has easily been one of the best decisions I have made in my life. After having glasses for most of my life, it's crazy to think I can now wake up and see clearly. I was referred here by my optometrist, Dr. Toy, in early 2016. I came for the free consultation where Dr. Furlong and his staff determined that I...

Five stars.  Why?  I was suffering from rapidly progressing cataracts at the relatively young age of 37.  I was forced to take time off of work until the first surgery was complete.  My left eye had deteriorated from 20/300 in January to "hand motion (I could see light differences and movement only)" the day...

My lasik surgery experience at the center was fabulous! The staff is very friendly, customer service is great! Interaction with Dr. Furlong was directly in the surgery room. Everything was very smooth and the location is super hygienic and has the top technology.

Just got my lasik surgery done last week by Dr. Furlong, and so far so good! I got referred to Dr. Furlong from my optometrist. A little pricier than competitors, but it's YOUR EYES, not the situation to be looking for a discount. They take a lot of time to make sure that you're comfortable and informed, and the...

One of the best decisions I've made in my life! It took me about 2 years before I actually made a decision and not to sound super corny or anything... I should've done it sooner! It's definitely easier saying that knowing my LASIK surgery went well so I completely understand anyone's fear or hesitation with...

My mom had cataract surgery with with Furlong Vision this past month. It was a smooth experience.  She had one eye done first, followed by the second eye a few weeks later.  She saw Dr. Furlong for consultation in June.  He gave her a detailed exam and performed various scans.  She decided to go with femto laser...

Dr.Furlong did PRK for my insanely farsighted eyes in September 2016. I am now seeing 20/20!!! I couldn't be happier with the results. I also appreciated that he was honest when he didn't recommend PRK for my thin corneas... better safe than sorry! Thanks again, best money I could have spent on myself.

I rarely write reviews on Yelp, but for something as important as LASIK, I did a lot of research & visited several places in Silicon Valley. I recommend you do too! You get what you pay for...don't budget on your eyes! You want the best technology & an experienced & personable  Doctor. Dr. Furlong is...

Super thorough and professional.  The staff accurately explained exactly what to expect and answered all my questions in an even-handed way with lots of detail about risks and benefits.

Theres no guarantee of results, but turns out my vision was corrected to better than 20/20 and I'm very happy with the results.
