VDU Eye Care
At Eric Mercer’s, our VDU Eyecare Scheme offers convenience and cost-effectiveness to employers and employees alike. Under Health & Safety regulations, employers are responsible for providing eye care to staff who regularly use a computer screen (VDU) in their work. This involves funding eye tests at regular intervals and providing spectacles - if required specifically for VDU use. Our VDU Eyecare Scheme includes comprehensive eye tests, full written reports and an attractive selection of VDU spectacles.
VDU eye tests
We examine all VDU users according to recommended Association of Optometrists’ guidelines. This includes a full assessment of eye health as well as a test of vision. We will also take time to advise staff on how to use their VDUs more comfortably, avoiding eye strain and fatigue. For larger workforces, we can arrange to carry out VDU eye tests on site.
The majority of computer operators do not need a spectacle correction specifically for VDU use. However, for those that do, we offer a smart range of VDU spectacles at reasonable prices. Like all our spectacles, these come complete with a one-year guarantee.
