Help with Costs


44522866_sAt i-Care, we understand it can be difficult to pay for eye care due to your personal circumstances.

You may get help with the cost of glasses or contact lenses if you:

are aged under 16, or aged under 19 and in full-time education or
are eligible for an NHS complex lens voucher (we can advise you on your entitlement)
or are a prisoner on leave from prison

You may also get an NHS optical voucher if:

You receive Income Support or Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (not contribution-based)
You receive Pension Credit Guarantee Credit.
You receive Income-based Employment and Support Allowance.
You are awarded Universal Credit
You are entitled to, or named on, a valid NHS tax credit exemption certificate.
You are named on a valid NHS certificate for full help with health costs (HC2).

People named on an NHS certificate for partial help with health costs (HC3) may also get help.

You will be asked to show proof of your entitlement to the optical voucher to a member of our team.

There are currently ten voucher values. The values are dependent on the strength of your prescription. The stronger your prescription the higher your voucher value.

Call in and discuss a plan for your eye care with a member of our friendly team and we’ll help you find a solution that’s right for you.
