The holidays are hectic and it’s easy to forget things. Something that gets forgotten often? “Use it or lose it” benefits (Flex saving accounts, HSA, etc.) that expire at the end of the year.

Even if you haven’t forgotten, it can still be a pain to figure out how to use them. If you have “use it or lose it” insurance benefits, here are a few ways to get your money’s worth …

1) Get An Eye Exam

Is your vision getting blurry? Maybe you’re just straining to read screens. Whatever the reason, a good eye exam can help you solve the problem. Even if your eyes feel fine, it’s still a good idea to get them checked out.

Bonus: Your eye doctor could prescribe some treatments for wrinkles and crow’s feet!

2) Treat Yourself To A New Pair Of Glasses or Sunglasses

Eyeglasses aren’t just about function; they can also reflect your personality and make a statement. Whether it’s the latest Jimmy Choo, Armani, or wooden frames, eyeglasses can help you show off your own unique style.

Your current glasses are fine? A new pair of polarized sunglasses would be a great addition! Especially in the winter months when the sun is lower and shines directly into your eyes when you drive. Prescription sunglasses can eliminate glare and help reduce eye strain while improving your vision clarity.

3) Need New Contacts? There’s No Better Time Than Now!

Contact lenses are awesome, but they’re also easy to lose and wear out if you don’t clean them consistently. In addition, there are many different types of contacts and you might not be wearing the ones that suit you best.

It’s important to have an exam every year to make sure you’re wearing the best contacts that fit comfortably with your unique eyes.
