Ask A CPA - Medical Expenses

Laser Eye Surgery

Eye surgery performed to improve vision qualifies as a medical expense because it alleviates defective eyesight and is not considered cosmetic surgery. It is reportable on IRS Schedule A as a medical itemized deduction subject to your 10% / 7.5% AGI limitation.
