It might sound weird or different but giving yourself or someone else the gift of eye care makes a perfect gift. Health is the most important gift to give or to receive…
- If your loved one has been having trouble with their vision, or simply has not had their eyes checked in some time, consider gifting them their next appointment or a pair of glasses. Keep in mind that a visit to an eye doctor not only ensures their vision is okay, but it can screen for diseases like glaucoma, which can rob them of their vision entirely. It is gesture that shows them you care about their health and quality of life.
- Get a jumpstart on your New Year’s resolutions and make sure you are taking advantage of all your health benefits. A visit to your eye doctor, along with all your medical check-ups, can be an ideal way to start the new year. Your doctor can tell whether your eyes are healthy or give you ways you can get your sight in shape for 2019. If your medical benefits provide for one eye exam per year, you want to make sure you take advantage of the benefit before the year ends. In addition, if your benefits include a flex spending account (FSA), that’s all the more reason to schedule a visit to your eye doctor before the end of the year. These accounts provide a tax-advantaged way to pay for out-of-pocket health care costs, but usually you must use the money within the planned year.
- Enjoy your family, friends, & the holidays with improved eyesight. If you are struggling with your eyesight, your eye doctor can likely help improve your vision in time to see the beauty of the holiday season. With the right prescription, you can take in distant light displays and shopping scenes, as well as close-up sights like a plate of cookies or a gift you’re unwrapping. Enjoy watching a classic holiday movie with your family without struggling to see what’s on the screen.
