Private health funds (MBF, HCF, Bupa, etc..) provide rebates for spectacles, sunglasses and contact lenses. These are for set amounts in the different tables of coverage. It is also possible to select lenses and frames which are fully covered by these rebates (see below).

Not all Health Funds and coverage tables provide the same level of rebate:

  • Single Vision Spectacles – $80 to $225*
  • Bifocal Spectacles – $110 to $250*
  • Progressive or Multi-Focal Spectacles – $130 to $300*
  • Prescription Sunglasses – $130 to $300*
  • Soft Contact Lenses – $110 to $250*
    * Approximate rebates

We are able to claim directly for some funds, thus avoiding the need for patients to pay and claim. Our staff will advise whether your fund and level of coverage is included in these arrangements.
