Maximise and Maximise-Plus Eyecare Scheme

The Maximise and Maximise-Plus eyecare scheme is exclusive to John Trotter Opticians and our associate practice F. Robson & Co Opticians of Newcastle. For a small monthly payment members  receive all professional services free of charge i.e. eye examination, Optomap retinal imaging and contact lens checks.  The scheme gives huge savings – usually 30% – on spectacle purchases, and reduced price contact lenses.

Free eye examinations

As a Maximise Member we will invite you to have annual eye examinations, however, you can take advantage of additional examinations as you feel you need them.

Huge Savings on Spectacles

FAQs – Maximise from John Trotter Opticians

How does Maximise work?
Easy: we collect a monthly payment from as little as £10 per month by standing order and you will reap the benefits as soon as the payment is set up.

How long must I remain a member of Maximise?
18 months is the minimum membership of the scheme. If you decide to leave the scheme before that time you simply pay the outstanding premiums which means you don’t lose any of the benefits for the full 18 months.

Can I join Maximise without setting up a standing order? No, the payments must be made by standing order.  This has the advantage over direct debit in that you have complete control over the amount being paid to us

Is the accidental damage cover complicated?
