Elderly Health Care Voucher Scheme

Welcome to Use Health Care Vouchers

The optometrists (PartⅠregister) in Swisscoat Vision Center have registered the Elderly Health Care Voucher Scheme (HCV), and we are eligible to serve elders with eye care service wholeheartedly. Our eye check provides an in-depth understanding about your eyes, but also different eye care tips and professional advice. The vision center is fully equipped with state-of-the-art instruments to apply a 3-step Lens Prescription Process. A comprehensive eye check-up by qualified and experienced optometrists and optical glasses shopping experience will present to elders over 65. We welcome the eligible elderly using the Health Care Voucher for regular eye check at our center.

Elderly Health Care Voucher Scheme

According to Scheme, the age requirement has been lowered from 70 to 65, enabling more elders to benefit from the HKD 2000 per year subsidiary. From July 2017, any eligible persons holding a valid Hong Kong Identity Card or Certificate of Exemption may begin using the vouchers at any health care service providers with “Health Care Voucher” Scheme logo. These service providers now include registered optometrists (part 1), and eligible persons may use the voucher for purchasing eyeglasses after a Primary Eye Care Exam.

Comprehensive Eye Check-up

Swisscoat Vision Center is dedicated to providing elders the best Primary Eye Care Exam, which should include inquiring medical history, Refraction tests, Visual Function tests, Eye health tests, and an overall visual health diagnosis and professional consultations. After the examination, our optometrists will recommend more detailed exams or referrals to follow up if necessary.

Earlier Eye Disease Detection

Swisscoat strives to attend to the needs of the elderly. The risk of an eye disease developing increases as people age. Many eye diseases are closely related to age such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration may begin to show symptoms. Fortunately, the early symptoms of most common eye diseases can be detected with regular eye checkups. This essentially means, the older one is, the more important a regular eye checkup becomes.

Our Corrective Lenses Improve Vision

A regular eye checkup serves more than merely detecting symptoms as it provides vital optical information so you can be prescribed the right corrective lenses to improve vision. Swisscoat Vision Center also carries many quality frames for elders. Optometrists will prescribe glasses for elders who are in need as well as those who need to renew the power for sight rectification, and related fee will also be deducted from customer’s account. It is also recommended for the elderly to wear Swisscoat lenses with UV and high energy blue light blocking functions. Exposure to UV rays increases the risk of cataract and other eye disorders, and could cause accelerated ageing in the skin around the eyes. Signs of accelerated ageing in skin include dull skin, freckles, and wrinkly skin.

Poor vision is not an inevitable part of aging, and proper protection could help maintain vision. We recommend elders to undergo an eye exam at least once a year, to track any power changes.
