  • Optician fees – 80% of the cost of prescribed glasses and contact lenses, up to £200 a year (AXA PPP will pay this as long as the glasses or lenses are used to correct your vision. You do not have to pay an excess if you claim for optician fees.
  • Eye tests – up to £25 a year for an eye test (you do not have to pay an excess if you claim for an eye test).
