Get your glasse refunded
Did you know that you can get your glasses reimbursed by your insurance? Follow our guidelines below and file for reimbursement today. You're already informed? Good for you — then all that's left is to find the perfect frame.

Three simple steps

Step 1

Check with your insurance provider whether prescription glasses are covered. That depends on your insurer and the policy you hold. Your insurer might only cover the cost of your lenses, not that of your frame. Luckily, we offer great frames for only CHF 165.

Step 2

Check whether you qualify for reimbursement. Some insurance providers cover prescription glasses for underage clients only. Some insurance providers offer coverage for lenses above certain dioptres.

Step 3

You might have to prove to your insurance that you require prescription glasses or contact lenses. Some insurance providers will ask for a form that includes your prescription. Whatever documents you might need, we are here to help you out.

If you need a signature

Your insurance company might ask for a signature from your optician — to ensure that you really have a condition that requires you to wear protective eyeglasses. Not to worry — we have lovely opticians working at each one of our stores. Pop by, and they will be happy to help you out.
