Optical Extras?

by | 22 Nov 2021 | Eyewear, Health Funds, News

Use them, don’t lose them by December 31st

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

9 new eyewear ideas

To help you get the most out of your optical extras this year, here are 9 new eyewear ideas that your health fund optical extras could be useful towards.

1. Prescription sunglasses

Enjoy crisp, clear vision and UV protection at the same time. Sunglasses in your prescription are no longer an indulgence; they’re one of life’s necessities for glasses wearers. Ask us about polarisation for an even better result. You’ll never look back!

2. Digital eyewear

Spend a lot of time in front of digital screens? Ask us about digital eyewear to help alleviate the strain on your eyes. We know that spending 2+ hours on digital devices can lead to neck & shoulder pain, headaches or tired, itchy eyes. Relax and protect your eyes from digital eye strain with dedicated digital eyewear.

3. 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. This is one of the easiest way to get more from your optical extras.

4. New fashion look

We love helping people select a new look from our hand-picked range of frames. Let’s face it. There’s nothing quite like treating yourself to a new look and when it’s your eyes, everyone will notice!

5. Sports eye wear

Whether you play the occasional round of golf or are an elite athlete, sports specific eyewear can enhance your performance and comfort, whilst protecting your eyes against harmful UV rays and injury.

6. Driving glasses

Your vision is responsible for around 90% of the information we use for driving. We can assess your vision to ensure maximum road safety with appropriate eyewear. Furthermore, driving specific lenses and night driving glasses help eliminate the bright glare from oncoming traffic and street lights.

7. Contact lenses

The latest technologies in contact lenses means we can prescribe a contact lens solution for almost any prescription. Don’t let glasses get in your way. Enjoy the freedom, comfort and convenience of contact lenses (and they come in multifocals!). The latest contact lens technologies open up a world of possibilities!

8. Spare 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. Take the stress out of those sticky situations by making sure you have a spare pair with your current prescription on-hand if you need it.

9. Social or occasion glasses

You wouldn’t wear the same pair of shoes with every outfit, so why would you wear the same pair of glasses? Consider a conservative style for work, a bolder design for casual wear and something more elegant for formal occasions.

Don’t lose your optical extras. Claim them before December 31st!

How much will my fund cover?

Most health fund members with optical extras cover can claim two pairs of single vision glasses, or one pair of multifocal glasses each year. Every fund provides a slightly different level of cover, so we will provide you with an accurate, itemized quotation so you know exactly where you stand with your health fund.
