What is it?

The ACT Seniors Spectacles Scheme provides eligible ACT residents a $35 rebate  towards the cost of spectacles every two years.

Who is eligible?

Eligible people for the scheme must be residents of  the ACT and hold an ACT Seniors Card. Applicants are required to pay for the  total cost of their spectacles/contact lenses less the $35 Government subsidy,  which is payable to the optometrist/optical dispenser at the time of collecting  their spectacles/contact lenses.

The subsidy available through this Scheme cannot be used in conjunction with the ACT Spectacles Subsidy Scheme.
