How does our Eyecare Voucher Scheme help?
We all know that employers have a duty of care to support the physical wellbeing of their staff when that wellbeing could be affected by the role they are performing. Eye health and quality of sight are important aspects of the physical wellbeing of any employee.
Our Eyecare Voucher Scheme allows you to ensure that your staff have access to eye tests and glasses regardless of their financial circumstances. The vouchers reduce the amount they have to spend on optician’s appointments, eye tests, contact lenses and glasses.
What is the Eyecare Voucher Scheme?
The Eyecare Voucher Scheme allows your employees to access vouchers that contribute to the cost of eye tests and glasses. This reduces their outgoings, ensures their eye health is as good as can be and means you are meeting your legal obligations as an employer. Employers have a legal obligation to provide an eye test for a Visual Display Unit (VDU) user if they request one, and the employer is obliged to pay for glasses if they need them only for VDU use. Most standard computers fall under the category of VDUs.
The vouchers can be redeemed by thousands of opticians around the country. There are different vouchers available depending on your employees’ needs.
- Visual Display Unit (VDU) Eyecare vouchers are the perfect solution for employees who spend the vast majority of their time on computer screens or similar.
- Safety Eyewear vouchers contribute to the cost of optician appointments, health checks and glasses for those working in environments that may be hazardous or dangerous.
- Our Optical Care vouchers cover the cost of prescription lenses, frames and contact lenses for general use.
- Premium Club vouchers cover multiple types of eyecare, including VDU and Safety eyewear care. Recipients can also use the vouchers to pay for the eyecare of up to two family members.
No matter what cover you need, we can provide you with the right mix of vouchers for your team.
