You can use, and have always been able to use, your FSA dollars for eyecare, eyewear, contact lenses and solutions. This is a great option for those of you who have the "use-it-or-lose-it" plans and have all your medical costs caught up. The rules for FSAs changed in 2013. Many plans allow you to carry up to $500 into the next year to cover qualifying medical expenses. Check with your employer to see which kind of plan you have.
