Some patients find that at the end of the year they have funds left in their FSA accounts and that money is “use it or lose it”. Instead of writing it off as a loss, why not make an appointment before then and see if you are a candidate for LenSx® Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery and/or a Multifocal lens?
When a cataract has progressed to the point that it is interfering with normal, everyday functions, such as driving or reading, surgery is often the recommended course of action. Cataract surgery involves moving the lens of the eye and replacing it with an artificial lens. Approximately 90 percent of cataract surgery patients report better vision following the surgery.
The LenSx Laser Assisted Surgery is a blade free procedure that allows the extra benefit of not just removing the cataract but also addressing astigmatism in the same procedure. It is the most technologically advanced option for cataract patients today, allowing your ophthalmologist to create a cataract surgery that’s 100% unique to you.
Multifocal Lens Implants offer an expanded view over the standard lens implant and many patients find that their dependence on glasses is decreased significantly after surgery with LenSx Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery and/or a Multifocal Lens Implant.
Both the laser and the upgraded lens implant are elective additions that are not covered by insurance carriers and are out of pocket expenses that are added onto surgery. They are a great way to ensure that FSA funds do not get lost while also providing yourself or a loved one with the best possible options for superior vision.
