If you’ve got Peoplecare extras cover, you’ll have your pick from a range of no gap glasses*. But if you don’t have extras cover, don’t worry! All Peoplecare members get 25% off^ our entire range of glasses, contacts & sunglasses.

If you don’t have Peoplecare cover we’ll still look after you with great prices on all of our glasses, contacts & sunglasses. And you can claim with any fund (on the spot if they use HICAPS).


*‘No gap’ means there are no out-of-pocket costs on a selected range of glasses (as long as your annual optical limit hasn’t been used). The range of no gap glasses depends on your level of cover.

^Pricing structures are reviewed regularly and are subject to change without notice. Not available with any other product discount or special offers.


Peoplecare Eyes & Teeth COVID-19 Update - Emergency treatments only

Unfortunately, we’ve had to close Peoplecare Eyes and Teeth to all non-emergency dental and eyecare appointments because of the escalating COVID-19 situation.

Our first priority is to protect our beloved community, patients, visitors and staff from the potential threat and spread of the Coronavirus.

Please postpone any general or preventative check-ups until the COVID-19 crisis has settled. We will look forward to seeing all of our loyal customers and patients again when the situation has resolved.

Our dental and optical clinicians will still be able to help with the most urgent requests through telephone consultations, so please call us 1300 574 778 (9am-5pm Monday to Friday) and we will do our best to help.

For after hours dental or optical emergencies, or if you can’t get hold of us, please go straight to emergency departments at either Wollongong Hospital or Shellharbour Hospital.

We appreciate your understanding and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Visit our Facebook page for updates and we hope to be back with you before too long.

Please stay safe and sound.

Take care,
The Team @ Peoplecare Eyes & Teeth

Elena, one of our optometrists, loves helping the planet with bush regeneration, putting on a feast for her friends, a chocolate hit and helping people see things clearly.

Elena graduated from Melbourne University in 1984 with a Bachelor of Science in Optometry.

She worked in Footscray and Sunshine in Victoria, before spending a year in Coffs Harbour for a sea change. She came to Wollongong in 1998 and had her own practice in the medical centre at Wollongong Uni, as well as working at the NIB Eyecare Centre (which later became SmartEyes).
