Q: Can I use a Flexible Spending Account or Heath Savings Account to buy glasses?
A: Yes! Tortoise & Blonde is an approved prescription eyewear vendor for Flexible Spending and Health Savings accounts.

Or you may purchase your glasses using a unaffiliated credit card and submit our order confirmation email as a receipt for reimbursement.
Q: Do you accept insurance?
A: We don’t accept insurance directly, but many insurance companies will accept receipts from providers outside their network for partial reimbursement. Your order confirmation email should suffice as a receipt. Please note that we sell our specs as a package so the order confirmation summary will not show the price for lenses and frames separately.
