Since I lost my old clip-ons (to provide sun protection) for my prescription glasses and I bought a new pair, I'm wondering, if they are deductible as a medical expense. Actually my real interest is to claim them as an FSA expense, but when I called the provider to inquire about eligibility, they told me that "if it's deductible as a medical expense, it's eligible". However they couldn't tell me, if it was indeed deductible.Publication 502 doesn't mention clip-ons, but I understand that prescription sunglasses would be deductible. So I'm wondering, if clip-ons that provide sun protection and are supposed to be used with regular prescription glasses might also be deductible.Does anyone here know?Thanks in advance,Bernhard
Unless you have a medical issue with light sensitivity, it would be a stretch to justify clip-ons.
I've had cataract surgery, so, right or wrong, I throw the cost of my sunglasses into the list of deductions.
