Free eye glasses
I have been trying to find out some information on the Centrelink site and there doesn't seem to be any info on getting glasses. I believe one can get free glasses if you have the Pensioner Concession Card (PCC), is that right? I have the kept the prescription.
A. Answer provided by Centrelink General Manager, Hank Jongen.
The Pensioner Concession Card provides customers with a range of discounts. For example, the Federal Government provides a discount on medicines through the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme and a range of other assistance is available through State Governments, such as discounted public transport. Centrelink doesn’t offer discounts on prescription glasses, so I recommend contacting your State Government to see if it can help you.
