Help with buying prescription glasses

Glen Eden Optometrists

If you are on a low income or benefit you may be able to get help with the cost of the eye examination and glasses.
You need to contact your local Ministry of Social Development (MSD) office first before seeing one of the approved optometrists in your area.
Once approved, you will be given a payment card and have 21 days to spend the money before it expires.
You then book in for an eye examination and you will be advised what you need.
There is a variety of frames to choose from within a selected range.
If you need more specialised lenses that are outside those approved by MSD then you will be given a quote to take back to MSD for approval.
Here at Glen Eden Optometrist we have been approved by MSD so if you have any questions feel free to contact us on 818-4452.

Minimum wage, no help and on the ladder at 25: here's how they did it

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.

Pōhutukawa vandalism: Allegations among Karaka residents - was it an inside job?

Reporter Reporter from Auckland Stuff

A series of accusatory hand-written notes have been delivered to residents of Harbourside Drive following Sunday’s vandalism of several trees.

Locals are feeling “absolutely disgusted” at the suggestion that they are behind the incident, which involved a vandal felling eight street pōhutukawa trees with a chainsaw.

Paul and Sue Wilson, who have lived on the road for over 10 years, arrived home on Monday from a trip to Waiheke Island to find a line of felled trees and a curt hand-written note in their letterbox.
