Optical network

Changes to our optical network

VSP Global is withdrawing its operations in Australia. That means that some optometrists previously under the VSP Vision Care brand will no longer be part of our optical network from 1 October. We're pleased to share that we're bringing new optical partners onboard. More details will be added to this page shortly.

Optical benefits never looked so good

Defence Health has joined forces with Specsavers and VSP Vision Care to create an optical network available to all members with optical cover. Our optical network provides great value optical benefits and a great range of no-gap glasses.

VSP Vision Care is a group of more than 500 independent optometrists. VSP stores are conveniently located close to where you live or work. Specsavers is a household name with more than 280 optical stores around Australia.

You don’t have to use the optical network. But if you do, you are assured of great value optical benefits, coupled with a great choice of stylish, fashionable frames.

Visit specsavers.com.au or vsp-australia.com.au to find your nearest optical network provider.

Optical Network benefits are subject to your policy's annual limits and waiting periods. The no-gap glasses deals are based on standard lens options. Other lens choices are likely to involve an out-of-pocket. For the 2 pairs no-gap glasses deal, the second pair must be from the same or lower priced range and must be for the same prescription.
