Corporate Plans

Through the Corporate Partner Program and Flexible Spending Accounts, companies can give their employees the gift of clear vision at affordable prices. Either by offering a company discount or allowing the employee to use pre-paid tax dollars to pay for the medical expenses, companies can help their valued employees save hundreds of dollars on ocular care and other lifestyle-enhancing surgeries.

Tax Deduction

As of 2003, the Internal Revenue Service announced a new tax provision permitting taxpayers to deduct medical expenses if such expenses exceed 7.5 percent of their annual incomes. Because medical care “meaningfully promotes the proper function of the body,” it qualifies as a deductible expense according to the IRS. If you meet the qualifications for this tax deduction, the costs of it will be substantially reduced for you.

Whatever your financial constraints may be, the professionals at our office will help you explore our financing option to see if one is right for you. For more information, contact our ocular care center in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach or Portsmouth, serving Hampton Roads and beyond.
