Many Flex plans will expire in December

Many do not realize that prescription eyewear (including prescription sunglasses and prescription reading glasses) are considered eligible purchases under all flexible spending accounts.



Flexible Spending Accounts (also known as cafeteria plans) are great!  They let us defer income pretax and set it aside in an account for payment of medical or healthcare related expenses.  Unfortunately there is a small catch.  Since it is a tax deferred account, the IRS has strict limitations of the time that we have to use these funds.

These funds are usable in a 365 day period. To make things a little more complicated, plan administrators may choose different periods as the effective plan year.  Many local plan periods are January 1st to December 31st.  Anything left in the account and not claimed by the plan expiration date is forfeited to the plan administrator and can even then be considered as taxable income on the employee’s payroll taxes.

Use your balance by December 31, 2016 to insure that your expenses are covered this plan year.

Check with your plan administrator for exact dates and rules for your individual plan.

Designer Showcase — MYKITA MYLON

This Saturday, 11am to 6pm

MYKITA MYLON.  The most innovative and amazing new material for eyewear.  MYLON frames are 3D printed of a lightweight proprietary nylon powder.  The printing process can create nearly any shape the MYKITA design house can dream up and once in solid form it becomes extremely flexible and amazingly durable.

Wink is always proud to host the MYKITA collection for a special exhibition of their talent and perspective on the eyewear industry.  If ever you found yourself in need of a lighter, more flexible, more durable, and more fashionable pair of glasses, you will absolutely fall in love with MYKITA.

Manufactured by hand in Berlin of the highest quality, featherweight spring stainless steel, MYKITA frames are some of the most comfortable frames that exist in the world today.  Their exclusive and patented screwless hinge designs have earned them numerous design awards.  No screws means nothing to come loose.  

This Saturday our MYKITA ambassador will be on site with the entire collection for you to browse.

Orgreen design clean contemporary masterpieces for men and elegant tailored looks for ladies.  We are especially impressed by the range of sizes of the 2017 Orgreen men’s collection which features some of the largest frames we have ever found available.  The Orgreen woman will appreciate their inimitable color pallet and easy to wear fits.
