Free Eye Test and Glasses from our €69 Range with PRSI / Medical Card

PRSI Free eye test

Your guide to better benefits

If you look after your eyes, your vision could last a lifetime. Which is why you should make sure you book an eye test at least every two years.

If you’re eligible for PRSI assistance, your eye test will be completely free. But did you know that your enhanced benefits now entitle you to free glasses from Vision Express too?

Buying glasses

In addition to a free eye test, these new enhanced benefits, which are also available to Medical Card holders, gives you the following three options:

Free glasses from our €69 range, or a lower priced range, complete with single vision, Essential Varifocal or bifocal lenses.

A €69 contribution towards glasses from our €99 glasses range, or a higher priced range, including single vision, Essential Varifocal or bifocal lenses.

Use your benefit as part payment towards one of our instore offers, such as a second pair of glasses for half price. Simply pay the difference between your allowance and cost of the your chosen glasses.

How to claim

We’ll start by checking your PPS number to see if you’re eligible for the above benefits. We can do this at your local Vision Express store, or you can check for yourself on the
DEASP website

If you have a Medical Card, you’ll need to call into your local Vision Express store for an application form. You will need to send the completed form to the HSE for approval. When you receive authorisation, you can then book an eye test and claim your other benefits. Please remember to bring along the authorised form when you come in for your appointment.
