Updated Children’s Spectacle Subsidy Guidelines

The Ministry of Health’s Disability Support Services has recently reviewed and updated the Children’s Spectacle Subsidy manual. Please familiarise yourself with this new document.

The changes relate to:

  • Genuine and Exceptional circumstances for exceptional claims outside of the guidelines.  An example, of genuine and exceptional circumstance would be additional funding for tinted or photochromic lenses for a condition such as albinism, resulting in symptoms of severe photophobia.  Prior approval is required before an online claim is submitted.
  • Clinical guidelines included as part of the manual rather than a separate document.
  • All figures GST inclusive.
  • Changes have been made to the High Level Subsidy.
  • Updated to reflect current online claiming process.

If you have any questions about any of these changes please contact Enable New Zealand on
