Have optical extras as part of your health insurance?

Do you have extras cover as part of your private health insurance? Most health funds – including Bupa, Medibank and NIB – reset optical extras on January 1 which means that any unused extra funds are lost after this date.

So this year get the most return on your health fund investment by using your optical extras allowance on the perfect set of eyewear.

Here are a few great ways to use your extras funds:

Prescription Sunglasses

You’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors this summer with clear vision and essential protection from damaging UV rays and glare. There are so many prescriptible frame options and polarised lenses available, you’ll find just what you need.

Digital Eyewear

Australians are spending more time in front of digital screens than ever before. Internet users aged 16 to 64 are estimated to spend more than 6 hours every day online, and nearly 4 hours watching television. Digital eyewear will help alleviate eye strain for yourself and your family.

New Look

We love helping people select a new look from our hand-picked range of frames. Pop in to browse our latest frames and make the most of your extras cover!

Reading Glasses

If you wear progressive glasses (also known as multifocals), we recommend a dedicated pair of glasses for reading and other up-close activities. Your eyes and neck will appreciate the wider zone of near-vision.

Driving Glasses

Your vision is responsible for around 90% of the information you use for driving. With changes to vision as you get older – you may have trouble, or be uncomfortable driving at night or are struggling when judging distances. Your optometrist can assess your vision to ensure maximum road safety with the appropriate eyewear.

Spare Everyday Pair

Planning a holiday? Losing or breaking your glasses can be stressful if you don’t have a back-up pair. Use your optical extras and claim a spare pair so you can enjoy your holidays and see clearly!

Contact Lenses

Lenses allows you to enjoy greater freedom, especially when participating in sport and outdoor activities. The latest technologies in contact lenses means we can prescribe a contact lens solution for almost any prescription.
