Ways to use your optical benefits

Are you making the most of your optical extras/optical benefits? We’re here to help you do just that before they disappear on December 31st.

Use your annual health fund optical extras and our expertise to find the perfect eyewear to complement what you already have or create a new look. With new lens technologies and stunning new frame looks, there are lots of reasons to claim new eyewear.

What are optical benefits?

If you hold a health insurance policy and have opted for extras, these will commonly include optical benefits. Optical benefits will cover eyewear such as frames, lenses and contact lenses when they are scripted for vision-correction. Your level of cover will depend on your health fund provider.

New eyewear ideas to help you be extras-savvy

Prescription Sunglasses
Experience crisp vision and UV protection. 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!

Digital Eyewear
Spend 2+ hours on digital devices? Experience neck & shoulder pain, headaches or tired, itchy eyes? Relax and protect your eyes from digital eye strain with dedicated digital eyewear.

Reading Glasses
Wear multifocal glasses and enjoy reading and other close-work? A specific pair of reading glasses will provide clear, uninterrupted vision for these activities.

Sports Eyewear
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.

Contact Lenses
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!

Spare Everyday Pair
Whether you’ve broken or lost a pair of glasses, you’ll probably be familiar with the stress of not having a spare pair readily available. 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.

Social/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.
