20% off on Frames and Lenses

How you benefit

You can get 20% off frames and eyeglass lenses by visiting optometrists in the Discovery Health Optometry Network.

All Discovery Health Medical Scheme members and selected schemes administered by Discovery Health (excluding KeyCare members) who visit optometrists in the Discovery Health Optometry Network can enjoy this saving.

How does it work?

The 20% discount on frames and lenses is immediate at the point of sale. Here is an example:

The Optometrist


Frames R 1500*
Lenses R 2500*
Eye examination R 400
Total invoice R 4400
20% discount (on frames and lenses) R 800*
Total after discount



You will therefore only pay R3 600 and not R4 400, saving R800.

The discount is only on hardware items such as frames and eyeglass lenses and not on contact lenses and professional services (consultation and eye examination fees). You can get the discount in addition to any other promotional offer the network optometrist might be running.
