What does ‘vision plan’ mean?

If you’ve got optical coverage but you’re not sure what you’re covered for, we’re here to help. We offer great value to make your vision plan go further, plus an exciting range of designer styles to help you get extra from your coverage.

At Specsavers, you can use your vision plan to claim a rebate on a comprehensive eye exam, including 3D eye scan, with one of our independent optometrists. You can also claim a rebate on our great range of glasses, prescription sunglasses and contact lenses. Each health insurer and policy is different, so it’s worth having a chat with our team in your local store to help you understand exactly what you can claim.

How does using a vision plan work?

Having optical coverage can mean that you can get an eye exam, glasses, sunglasses or contact lenses for low or no out-of-pocket expense. We have a great range of vision plan offers too, including two designer styles from the $199 range, complete with single-vision lenses for no or low out-of-pocket expense.
