The UMeyecare clinic carries a wide range of designer and budget frames for men, women and children. All types of contact lenses are fitted, and sunglasses are also available. Frame brands include: Armani, Diesel, Gucci, Dior, Carrera, Porsche and Kenzo.

Most consultations are covered under Medicare arrangements or through OSHC insurance. There may be a small gap fee. There may also be small fees for items that fall outside the Medicare system, such as some contact lens fitting and some auxiliary testing. These fees will be discussed with you before testing.

University staff and students and their direct family are offered a substantial discount (10-30%) off retail prices for contact lenses, prescription spectacles and sunglasses.

(No gap options are available for selected Health Funds)
