Why do I need Corporate Eye Care?
Corporate Eye Care is not a luxury, but a requirement. The Health and Safety Executive have detailed the obligations for employers to provide Eye Care for its employees.

Do Employers have to pay for Employees Eye Examinations?
Answer: Employees are entitled to ask their employer to provide an eye test if they habitually use Display Screen Equipment (DSE) as a significant part of your normal day to day work. This is a full sight test by an Optometrist (or a doctor).
Do Employers have to pay for DSE spectacles?
Answer: The employer will only have to pay for spectacles if the test shows they need special corrective appliances (normally spectacles) that are prescribed for the distance the screen is viewed at. If their distance prescription is suitable for DSE work, the employer does not have to pay for your spectacles.
