Use Up Your Health Fund Extras!!

Optical extras?

Use them or lose them by December 31!

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. Any unused extras are lost after this date.

This year, get maximum return for your health fund investment with the perfect set of eyewear. The Beckenham Optometrist team can help you claim optical benefits from ANY health fund – here are just a few great ways to claim.

Contact Lenses

Enjoy greater freedom for sports and outdoor activities. The latest technologies in contact lenses mean we can prescribe a contact lens solution for almost any prescription.

Prescription Sunglasses

Prescription sunglasses open a world of possibilities for glasses wearers and can be claimed with optical extras. Enjoy the outdoors this summer with superior clarity and essential protection from damaging UV and glare. With so many prescriptible frame options and polarised lenses available, there’s no reason to compromise any longer.

Digital Eyewear

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

New Fashion 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 we use for driving. Many people experience changes to their vision as they get older, and this can impact things like night driving or the ability to judge distances. Our friendly team can assess your vision to ensure maximum road safety with appropriate eyewear.

Spare Everyday Pair

Planning a holiday this Spring or Summer? Losing or breaking your glasses can be stressful if you don’t have a back-up. Drop in to claim a spare pair with your optical extras!
