What's covered by our optical insurance?

Our optical cover is divided into three separate services: Glasses, Contact Lenses, and Eye Therapy. It's important to make sure your cover includes the things you need.


This includes cover for up to 100% of the cost of a new pair of glasses each year. You can claim on complete glasses (frames and lenses) or just lenses, depending on what you need.

  • Frames & single vision lenses
  • Frames and bifocal or multifocal lenses
  • Frames & tri-focal/progressive lenses
  • Frames and multi-focal lenses
  • Frames only
  • Lenses only

Contact Lenses

This service helps you cover the replacement cost of your contact lenses, which is particularly handy if you wear contacts most of the time.

  • Contact lenses or frequently replaced lenses
  • Spherical rigid or soft contact lenses
  • Toric – rigid or soft lenses
  • Frequent replacement disposable contact lenses
  • Bi-focal progressive lenses

Eye Therapy (Orthoptics)

This includes optical treatments you might have during a check up. These services keep your eyes healthy, and being covered for them can help you save on out-of-pocket costs.
