Summer is almost upon us; long sunny days, time to relax and unwind (and don’t we all need a bit of that!) What could dampen the holiday fun; squinting into the glare whilst driving or not being able to read when you’re at the beach?
Not only uncomfortable and damaging to your eyes – it’s also very aging for the eye area! Enough said.
We have your solution: we can add prescription lens in your sunglasses! We have an extensive range from our favourite sunglass designers: Celine, Dior, Moscot, Garrett Leight, Victoria Beckham, Projekt Produkt, Anne et Valentine or Cutler and Gross that are suitable for prescription lenses.
Whether choosing a classic or a fashion forward look, we have something that will suit every face shape and size – and we will have you looking your most stylish yet this summer.
Now did you know Southern Cross covers prescription sunglasses as well as glasses and contact lenses?
You’ll need a prescription from an optometrist to make a claim on prescription sunglasses.
If you’ve never had prescription glasses before, we recommend booking in for an eye test with us. If you already wear glasses and have a valid prescription, prescription sunglasses are a great way to use your Southern Cross cover.
The great news is polarised lenses are also covered*. If you spend a lot of time in the sun and want to enhance the protection provided by your sunglasses, polarised lenses may be for you.
Polarised lenses eliminate 99.9% of horizontal glare and 100% of UV light. These lenses are a great solution for those who want to reduce glare whilst driving, participating in water sports or general activities outdoors. Please note in terms of driving, let us know if you have a heads up display, as polarised is not suitable for cars with this. As an additional benefit, Parker & Co Eyewear offer 25% off all polarised prescription lenses.
How to use your Southern Cross allowance We provide Southern Cross Easy-Claim. Just check your policy has an eyewear allowance, and we will take care of the rest. You can use Easy-Claim with us; simply present your member card or use the mobile app’s card at the counter when you are purchasing your prescription sunglasses, glasses or contact lenses – or paying for your eye exam.
If your plan covers the product or service and it qualifies, we invoice Southern Cross direct and you pay only any remaining contribution you’re responsible for so there’s no need worry about filling out claim forms or waiting for a refund. It really is that simple.
Come in and see us now to browse our sunglasses range, and why not book a dedicated style session to have prescription lenses added to a fantastic designer frame. We promise you’ll wonder how you ever lived without prescription sunglasses!
