Don't forget to use your health fund optical extras entitlements

Optical extras?
Use them or lose them by December 31.

Did you know that you can claim ANY health fund optical benefits with us? Maximise your entitlements and our expertise to find the perfect eyewear for you. We take the time to understand how you use your eyes so that we can tailor our eyewear recommendation for your needs. Sometimes

Just a few of the ways you can use your optical benefits this year regardless of which health fund:

  • Contact Lenses
    The latest technologies in contact lenses means we can prescribe a contact lens solution for almost any prescription. Contact lenses give people the freedom they need when glasses can get in the way, like for sport, travel, weekends and special occasions. With the latest technologies in contact lenses, even the multifocal wearer can see as clearly at varying distances as they would with glasses.
  • Prescription Sunglasses
    Enjoy clear vision and UV protection at the same time. Prescription sunglasses are one of life’s necessities for spectacle wearers. Now that there are so many prescriptable frame options available, almost anyone can enjoy the outdoors with superior clarity and protection from damaging UV and glare at the same time. With summer just around the corner, a pair of prescription sunglasses is the perfect way to maximise one’s optical extras.
  • Digital Eyewear
    Spend a lot of time in front of digital screens? Eye fatigue, blurred vision and headaches are becoming more and more commonplace, as are neck, shoulder and back pain. This is no surprise given that Australians spend an average of 10 hours and 24 minutes on digital devices every day (1). A dedicated pair of digital eyewear is recommended for people who spend 2 or more hours in front of digital screens, to help protect the eyes from the strain of their changing visual environment. .
  • New Fashion Look
    We love helping people select a new look from our hand-picked range of frames.
  • Reading Glasses
    If you enjoy reading and do a lot of close-work, a specific pair of reading glasses can provide clear vision and an extra level of comfort for your eyes.
  • Driving Glasses 
    Vision is responsible for around 90% of the information we use for driving, which is why even a small change in vision is cause for concern. Poor vision is a contributor to road accidents and yet it’s a risk every driver can easily reduce with a regular eye examination and the right eyewear recommendation. (2)
  • Spare Everyday Pair
    Losing or breaking your glasses can be stressful if you don’t have a back-up pair. Come in and claim a spare pair with your optical extras.
  • Sports Eyewear
    Sport-specific eyewear can enhance both your comfort and performance on the field. Sports-specific eyewear are designed to protect the eyes from both injury and harmful UV rays, something an everyday pair is not built to do. Sports eyewear can enhance one’s performance and visual comfort on the field. A smarter way for a sports enthusiast or athlete to spend their optical benefits.
