Eyeplan enters audiology

Monthly payment eye care scheme company extends its services

Chris Clemence

Eyeplan has launched a new scheme exclusively for independent opticians that wish to offer audiology services.

Announcing the establishment of Hearingplan, the monthly payment eye care scheme company explained that the new service aims to enable audiologists to provide patients with access to regular care and hearing aids at an affordable price.

Commercial director at Eyeplan, Chris Clemence, said: “There is a growing interest in the market for practices to offer additional services, such as audiology, if they have the space and time to do so. Hearingplan has been designed to support those practices.”

Established in 1998, for 20 years Eyeplan has supported independent opticians in generating income through a contracted monthly payment scheme with patients.
