December Promotion

December is the time of year when those of you with health fund optical coverage need to think about using your entitlement for 2010. Midnight December 31 means most or all of this years claim $ will expire, so if you need a spare pair, a new look or some contacts or prescription sunnies, make an appointment and we can assist you in expanding your optical wardrobe.

New Years day will also mean a new years worth of claim $ so many of our patients use this rollover to claim a second pair. Our staff are experts in helping you maximise your rebate so you can receive back your full entitlement. We have a full range of options available including "no-gap" ranges where you can pay nothing out of your own pocket, or you can choose from our unique designer brands like Dilem, Von Zipper, Versace and Prada and just pay the gap.

Make sure you drop by before December 31 to check what you are able to claim!

November Promotion

As part of our "My Eyes" eye health focus, protecting eyes from the sun and UV damage is a major part of our daily job as eyecare professionals at Envision Optical. We ask you a number of lifestyle questions when you come in for your appointment and some of these are aimed at ensuring your eyes are being protected whenever you are enjoying the outdoor lifestyle on the Gold Coast.

Many eye conditions including cataracts, pterygiums and Macular degeneration can be related to UV exposure, so loving your eyes by wearing sunnies will help your eyes stay as healthy as possible well into old age. Your sunnies need to block invisible UV to protect your eyes, but they also need to have a good quality tint, and preferably be polarised to reduce the glare and give you comfortable vision in the sun.  We have an excellent range of sunglasses at each of our stores including the premium polarised brand Maui Jim, and stylish fashion brands like Fendi, Guess, CK, Gant and Emilio Pucci.

This month is the perfect time to update your sunnies for summer because we are offering 20% OFF ON ALL NEW SEASON SUNNIES IN STORE, full warranties apply. Even greater discounts are available on selected stock from last season. If you have a prescription the 20% also applies to the cost of your tinted lenses, so it really is a great time to update!

We look forward to helping you protect your eyes and update your look.

October Promotion

One of our core reasons for existing at Envision Optical is to ensure that every person we look after experiences the clearest possible vision to enjoy their life. This month our promotion helps everyone experience the best in lens coating technology which enhances your vision through your new glasses.

A Multicoat is a multilayered coating applied to the surface of the lenses which reduces reflections and glare off the lens surface and maximises the light reaching the back of your eyes. This means your vision will be as clear as possible! 

These coatings are used routinely on camera and telescope lenses to ensure sharp pictures, and we are so confident that they deliver the same with your glasses that for October we are offering the coating with our compliments on every pair of lenses we dispense. This represents a saving of UP TO $80 ON YOUR NEW GLASSES. And the great part is the lenses almost disappear in your frames, so your new frames will look as fabulous as possible!!

We look forward to explaining the benfits to your vision of multicoat technology when you next visit one of our stores.
