Vision Testing with Insight Plus

Between holiday shopping, family visits, and vacation planning, you may not be thinking about your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA). But with FSA and HSA dollars set to expire in the new year, now is the perfect time to take a vision test and find out if you should use your account to invest in new eyeglasses.

How do you know if you need new eyeglasses?

According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the most common reason for getting glasses or contacts is to correct your vision to 20/20 vision. This means you would see with the visual acuity (or sharpness) of the average person. Glasses can also be used to correct refractive errors. This could be nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, which disrupts the way light enters your eye.

You may need new glasses if your vision isn’t properly corrected with your current lenses. Some of the signs that you may need new glasses include:

  • Blurry or distorted vision
  • Eyestrain or discomfort around the eyes
  • Frequent headaches
  • Struggling or squinting frequently to see far away or close up objects

A visual acuity test can let you know if you need to update your vision correction.

What is the easiest way to take a vision test?

You can test your visual acuity from home with the EyeQue Insight. You can even verify if you can see 20/20 with your eyeglasses or contact lenses! It takes less than a minute and you can do it anywhere that you take your smartphone. You can purchase an Insight from the Amazon FSA store and use your FSA dollars. You can use your results to determine if you have vision changes that warrant a visit to the eye doctor.

Do you need to buy updated eyeglasses?

The EyeQue VisionCheck lets you test your vision as often as you like to find out your EyeGlass Numbers (EGNs) and securely track changes to your vision over time. You can use EGNs to order affordable, stylish glasses online. Most online eyeglass retailers accept FSA or HSA accounts.

Check Your Visual Acuity And More

With the EyeQue Insight, check whether you and your family are seeing 20/20 as well as color vision and contrast vision.
