The Victorian Eyecare Service (VES) provides optometry care at low cost for persons who hold a pensioner concession card or health care card and live in rural Victoria. The VES is available in throughout rural Victoria through a large network participating optometrists and ophthalmologists. The primary care consultation fee is normally bulk billed and patients make a fixed contribution to the cost of glasses or contact lenses. The balance of the cost is subsidised by a State Government grant. The Victorian Eyecare Service (VES) is funded by the Government of Victoria and administered by the Australian College of Optometry.
