Companies like Warby Parker have adapted so you can get high-quality eyewear online – not to mention contact lenses, prescription sunglasses and more – with minimal hassle and at surprisingly low prices.
In fact, if you still have funds in your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and are wondering what to buy with your ASF Dollars, Warby Parker offers tons of eligible items. High-quality eyewear starts at $95, including prescription lenses. New customers will also see 15% off their contact lens order automatically applied at checkout, not to mention free shipping. Finally, thanks to Warby Parker Buy a Pair, Give a Pair Programany purchase of glasses or sunglasses from you means that a pair of glasses is distributed to someone in need.
If you choose to use your FSA dollars for glasses, act fast, as they expire on March 15 this year. Here are all the FSA eligible items Warby Parker has to offer right now.

You no longer have to choose between clear vision and sun protection. Warby Parker’s prescription sunglasses come in non-polarized or polarized lenses at no extra charge. Either way, they will reduce glare and block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. (Too many styles to choose from? With their timeless shape and scratch- and UV-resistant lenses, these Harris Frames will never go out of style.)
Use your FSA dollars to get an in-person appointment eye exam or update your prescription for glasses or contact lenses. Many Warby Parker sites offer comprehensive exams and contact lens fittings with optometrists, so you can book an appointment at a store near you.
Finally, you can purchase vision accessories, such as a lens cleaning kit with anti-fog spray, to keep your glasses as functional and hygienic as possible. (Keep in mind that some accessories may not be FSA or HSA eligible, so before buying, always check with your account provider!)
