Victorian Aboriginal Spectacles Subsidy Scheme
$10 glasses are available for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in Victoria, through the Victorian Aboriginal Spectacles Subsidy Scheme (otherwise known as VASSS).
You do not need a Pensioner Concession Card or Health Care Card to get $10 glasses under this program.
You can choose from a range of metal and plastic frames approved by community Elders. Depending on your prescription, single vision lenses for long distance and/or reading, bifocals or multi-focal lenses are available.
Please note: transition lenses and spare pairs are available at extra cost (ask your optometrist for details)
