Sightcare Plan - FAQ’s

What is the cost to me?

The SightCare Plan costs £6.00 per month per person with no joining fee.

Is there a minimum term?

Yes - There is a 12 month minimum contract.

If you visit us once per year you have saved £12 before taking into account any other benefits

Can I choose the date you take my payment?

Yes - You can choose the 1st or the 15th of each month (payment will be collected on the first working day following the chosen date)

What other benefits are included?

SightCare Plan members receive 10% discount across spectacles, (including non-prescription eye-wear such as sunglasses or ready-readers), eye drops, solutions and accessories.

You will also have the option to spread spectacle payments over 10 interest-free payments by adding them to your direct debit.

I already pay a contact lens direct debit - do I need to join the Sightcare plan too?

No - Your contact lens direct debit already includes your comprehensive eye examination and gives you access to the same benefits as a Sightcare plan member.

I would prefer to pay as I go can I still pay per appointment?

Yes, absolutely.

The charge for our comprehensive eye examination is £84.00 per appointment.

In the past I haven’t paid for my appointments - is this still the case for me?

Yes - If you are eligible for NHS General Ophthalmic Services sight tests, although GOS sight tests do not cover the cost of advanced instrumentation.

Currently the NHS is not able to fund additional equipment and longer appointment times.

Equipment such as Optical Coherence Tomography and Digital Retinal Photography allow us to detect early signs of eye disease and help monitor these conditions in the community; avoiding unnecessary visits to the hospital.

For this reason we wish to carry out a comprehensive eye examination in place of the NHS sight test.

We do have limited NHS appointments available at present.

Please ask to join our NHS waiting list if you prefer to wait for an NHS appointment.

How do I join the SightCare Plan?

Please speak to our reception team to join our SightCare Plan and start receiving your membership benefits.
