Optical

When you need glasses, you need them. Our generous optical benefits encourage you to keep on top of your eye tests, and allow you to look sharp when you're in the market for new frames.

Optical cover provides a minimum of $200 per person per membership year towards the eyewear you need, whether that be contact lenses, new glasses or new lenses.

Your benefits also apply to any recognised optical provider, so you can choose any optometrist you like.

However, if you're looking for a little extra value for money, we do have agreements in place with Luxottica, a leading provider of eyecare and eyewear in Australia through a number of retail brands including OPSM, Laubman & Pank and Budget Eyewear, as well as The Optical Superstore in Townsville, the TUH Health Care Centre in Brisbane and Specsavers. Find out more about our Premier Provider Network.
