ACT Spectacles Subsidy Scheme

What is it?

The ACT Spectacles Subsidy Scheme provides eligible ACT residents with a subsidy of up to $200 once every two years.

Who is eligible?

Eligible people for the scheme must be residents of the ACT and hold a Pensioner Concession Card from either Centrelink or the Department of Veterans Affairs, or Healthcare Card which the holder has been entitled to for three months or more. Dependants of cardholders are also entitled to assistance under the Scheme if their name appears on the card.

Please note: the Commonwealth Seniors Health Care Card is not an eligible card under the scheme.

How do I apply?

Application forms are available from any of the registered optometrists listed below. Once the application form has been completed the provider will process the application in conjunction with the ACT Revenue Office.
