Contact Lens Subsidy

The Ministry of Health has a subsidy available for particular eye conditions where vision can be improved with contact lens wear.

These eye conditions include keratoconus, corneal graft, high myopia, high hypermetroia and aphakia. A client is eligible for the contact lens subsidy when they have any other ocular condition, which cannot be corrected by spectacle lenses.

The subsidy is complex but the team at Canon Street Optometrists are able to advise and claim on your behalf. The optometrist will discuss the subsidy with you if you are eligible.
