Family health insurance is something we usually overlook and purchase without much thought.

Most family households, including mine, are mostly ignorant or not fully aware of all the benefits they're entitled to claim throughout the year.

I mean...Seriously, when was the last time anyone properly read or took notice of everything inside a Product Disclosure Statement or PDS?

Depending on your insurer, Family Health Insurance policies usually have Extras Benefits expiring on 31 December with a reset on 1 January. 

In simple words, what does this mean?

Any unused benefits from the calendar year such as dental, podiatry or, wink wink, optometry typically won't roll over to the following calendar year so if you don’t use it, you lose it!

So there's no better time to address your family's eye health and eyesight than right now!

Is your child struggling to read or not doing well at school? Maybe they are shortsighted? Now is the time to book an optometrist appointment when the kids are wrapping up school.

Learn and explore options available to children such as prescription glasses or Ortho-K. What’s Ortho-K? We've got you covered with article links below.

Does anyone need new reading glasses because either they’re broken or the kids have simply outgrown them? Get these now.

Have concerns about your eyesight or your partner's? Book an eye test.

Want something fashionable? Maybe these extras benefits may be the much-needed budget top-up to get those fashionable frames that you've always been wishing for.

Finally, we're all going to be on screens a lot during the holidays, especially the kids, why not look after everyone's eyesight by considering blue light blocking glasses for the whole family?

Whatever you're spending your extras benefits on before the end of the year, make your family's eye health an important priority because, unfortunately, eyesight isn't something that can ever be improved but rather carefully managed over a lifetime.
