Optometry top-up benefit

Product info • by Ryno Ellis • 08 May 2017

At GetSavvi Health we understand that day-to-day expenses like visiting your optometrist may have you digging into your pocket more often than you’d like. That’s why our optometry top-up option offers you essential eye-care benefits that’ll help you save more. 

As you age, your vision slowly deteriorates. By taking good care of your eyes through a healthy lifestyle and periodically consulting your eye doctor, you’ll be able to slow the rate and keep your eyesight in good optimum condition. 

Here’s more information about our top-up option and how it will help you take better care of your eyes.

GetSavvi Health optometry top-up

The top-up optometry option is available and currently only includes eye care cover for the main member. A six-month waiting period applies from commencement of the top-up option.

If the top-up option is selected, the member will have access to the following once every 24 months:

Consultation/eye test

Explained: During a consultation, your optometrist will perform a full assessment and eye exam to detect problems such as diseases, infections, defects and impaired vision as well as recommend and provide eyewear to correct any vision problems.

GetSavvi Health’s benefits: One consultation/eye test every 24 months. Ts and Cs apply.

Eyeglass frame

Explained: The frame holds the prescription glasses in place.

GetSavvi Health’s benefits: One pair of Preferred Provider Network (PPN) spectacle frames every 24 months. Ts and Cs apply.

Single vision lenses
