Government Subsidies

Government subsidies could be available for you

Central Vision Optometry is able to access funding for community service card holders, for children under the age of 16. This involves one free eye exam per year, and a significant subsidy towards spectacles if these are required. There are also subsidies for contact lens wearers who meet certain criteria, including keratoconus, or high myopia/hypermetropia. We can advise you of these and access them where appropriate. Of course, as the first in the district to offer Gold Card contributions, we continue to pay a portion of your full eye exam if you are 65 or over. An ACC contribution is available for eye exams related to accidents. Either bring your ACC number if you have one, or we can lodge a claim on your behalf. Surcharges will apply depending on complexity of examination and follow ups required. Please contact us for any additional information in this regard.
