With a view to improving the reimbursement conditions for corrective glasses, a standard rate has been agreed with the various opticians in the Principality and neighbouring municipalities.
Contracted opticians agree to:
- Apply a standard rate when selling standard quality lenses to the public
- Issue a quote showing the standard-rate sale price and the amount of additional charges (both reimbursable and non-reimbursable) as well as the reimbursement rate for each order
Make sure that you request this quote when ordering your glasses so that you are aware of the cost before the service is provided.
Regardless of the age of the beneficiary, lenses supplied by a non-contracted optician will be reimbursed at five times the reimbursement rate applied in France.
The order form drawn up by the optician (with the quote and invoice sections completed), together with the prescription, must be sent to the SPME.

Should you break or lose your glasses within six months of purchase, you may replace them directly and send the SPME the new order form issued by the optician (with the quote and invoice sections completed), together with the replacement of glasses form.
