Although it is not a form of subsidy or free, some opticians also offer glasses subscriptions, which involve you paying a fixed amount per month, so you simply rent the glasses, or are guaranteed a certain number of pairs of glasses per year in case the glasses get damaged. In some cases, this option is interesting for children who are very active and may have a tendency to damage their glasses on a regular basis. Ask your optician about the options.
NOTE: Ask your optician what will happen if the child’s visual development suddenly causes their visual acuity to increase to a level at the limit for being eligible for subsidies from the public sector. Also ask whether it is possible to combine the two or not. We have heard of people who have had glasses subscriptions and who have been suddenly no longer able to benefit from public subsidies, because they were locked into a fixed glasses subscription scheme.
