VDU & Corporate

In 1992 Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations were introduced to improve conditions for all employees who work with Visual Display Units (VDUs) and who require safety glasses.

The welfare of your employees' eyesight is your responsibility. Eyeworks can ensure that your legal requirements are met, whilst offering a benefit that many employees value highly as part of their employee benefits scheme. Your company is obliged to provide the following for employees who regularly use VDU (computer) screens at work:

  • A full eye examination from a qualified Optometrist
  • Subsequent eye examinations at regular intervals as specified by the examining Optometrist
  • Basic VDU glasses (this could mean single vision, bifocal or varifocal glasses) if they are found necessary for VDU work and/or
  • Basic safety glasses (this could mean single vision, bifocal or varifocal glasses) if they were found necessary for work undertaken.

Our Corporate Eyecare scheme offers you and your employees discounted eye tests, money off glasses and contact lenses, also well as a range of benefits that apply to your employees. To find out more about the Eyeworks Corporate Eyecare scheme, call us on 01932 244266.


“Pleasant, friendly, smiling, helpful and efficient from reception to optometrist. One big happy family atmosphere which you become part of when you enter as a customer. They go beyond the call of duty, which they did recently when my husband developed a detached retina. Thank you all and a special thanks to Stephen and Mr Doshi for all your help and advice.” Frances and Richard Overton
