Eye Surgery Funding

Eye Surgery Funding

We are lucky to live in a world that is a filled with an abundance of colour and beauty. Unfortunately, for those who suffer from longstanding or chronic eye conditions, the world is not so vivid. SuperCare believes everyone should have a right to view the world with clarity, which is why if you need eye surgery but can’t afford the associated costs, we want to help.

Did you know that you can apply for early release of your superannuation to pay for eye surgery?

Through our innovative service, we help simplify the process of applying to the Department of Human Services for early release of your superannuation in order to fund a variety of eye surgeries and procedures, such as:

  • Cataract Surgery
  • Lasik Surgery
  • ASLA Surgery
  • Glaucoma Surgery
  • Macular Degeneration Surgery

One of the most common surgeries SuperCare clients need is cataract removal. In fact, it is the most common form of eye surgery in the developed world.

A cataract occurs when the natural lens of the eye (the crystalline lens) becomes cloudy. This predominantly happens over time, as the normal protein structure within the lens deteriorates with age.

Cataracts are not a growth, but rather a normal part of the ageing process. While they mainly occur in people over the age of 60, they can occur in people who are younger – and some are even born with congenital cataracts. Most people with cataracts are healthy and have no other eye problems.

If you need eye surgery and want to make an application to the DHS for early release of your superannuation, we want to help. We will take care of the paperwork, ensuring your application is streamlined and approved as quickly as possible.
