Get a FREE eye test if you work on a computer
Health & Safety rules can mean your employer's responsibleOngoing
If you work on a computer or laptop - sometimes technically known as a VDU (visual display unit) or DSE (display screen equipment) - for the majority of the day, you could be entitled to a free eye test from your employer.
The Health and Safety Executive has rules in place which mean that your employer may be obliged to offer you a free eye test if you ask for it. Each employer will have a different arrangement for this - some will let you book your own eye test and claim the money back on expenses, while others may prefer that all staff are seen by the same optician. It's best to speak to your employer and ask how it works for you.
Some employers will also pay for, or contribute towards, a pair of glasses if you need them to carry out your work. Again, it's best to ask your employer how this works for your company.
Remember to always keep your receipts as these may be needed, particularly if you need to claim the costs back yourself.
