Increasingly, employers are realising that looking after their employees' health brings huge benefits to their business. The Optical Express corporate eye care programme will help your team members to maintain good eye health and offer them the peace of mind that long term eye care brings.
We understand that every organisation has different employee eye care requirements - that's why we give our corporate clients the freedom to select the specific parts of our service that they need. Choose from our list of features, including on-site eye testing, free or subsidised VDU use spectacles and exclusive discounts.
Your employees would normally pay £20 for a private eye test, yet for half of this, you can offer them a valuable benefit that they'll truly appreciate. Should your employee make a purchase, the eye test is completely free of charge.
Personalised iScan reports are exclusive to Optical Express. Our optometrists will carry out a thorough assessment for each patient, monitoring your team members' visual health and being able to detect a number of general health conditions too.
A worthwhile employee benefit – at no cost to you! Your staff members can receive a wide range of discounts on designer glasses, contact lenses, laser eye surgery and lens surgery at Optical Express.
You may have employees who require glasses for general use. While there's no legal requirement for you to provide this type of eyewear, it's a valuable benefit for your workforce, from just £49 a pair.
For employees who are working regularly with display screen equipment and who require a prescription for this type of work, Optical Express can offer glasses which will meet basic health and safety standards from just £49 per pair.
We can visit your offices to conduct 20 minute eye assessments during the working day, so that your employees needn't take time off for external tests. We'll also bring a range of frames with us, to allow your employees to choose their favourites and we'll have a glasses MOT and repair service for their existing glasses.
Let us take care of your eye care benefits' administration. We provide authorisation forms, which you then distribute to your employees, so that you control how and when the benefits are used and can ensure that there are no surprise costs.
We can provide you with a variety of posters, artwork and copy for your staff newsletter or intranet to help you tell your employees about your company's great eye care benefits.

The short answer is: Most likely yes, if your employees use screens
Employers whose workers use screens regularly (daily, for continuous periods of an hour or more) need to comply with the Display Screen Regulations 1992, and fund an eye examination and basic spectacles, if used for specifically for DSE use.
