Under 15 Subsidy

Enable New Zealand have a subsidy available for children 15 years and under.

To be eligible for this subsidy the parent or child must have a current Community Services card or the child a current High Use Health card.

Canon Street Optometrists can claim this subsidy on your behalf once a very simple form has been completed.  

The subsidy can be claimed annually and is currently $287.50 or $338.61 if an adult size frame is recommended. 

There is also a higher level subsidy available with strict criteria around rapidly progressing myopia, six monthly modification to spectacles or children with amblyopia or strabismus who require more extensive intervention.   Our team will be able to advise you on this funding and take care of claiming on your behalf if the child is eligible.
