Free seniors reading glasses

YOURLifeChoices member Norman is in need of new reading glasses and wants to know if he can still access them free through VisonCare.

Q. Norman
I normally obtain the free seniors reading glasses every two years through VisionCare Australia. However the funds were redirected to other areas via the Labor Government. Can you tell me if things are back to normal this year as my eyes have not been tested for three years and it’s time I had an update.

A. The program to which you refer is actually state-funded and as far as I can find out, this is now operational. You can find out more information from VisionCare, toll free on 1800 806 851 and the NSW Government PDF which covers eye health and outlines the program.

You can also find out more from VisionCare NSW.
