A. For single vision VDU glasses it is typically 5 working days.
A. Single vision is typically seven working days and bifocal or varifocal, ten working days.
A. Under current DSE legislation you are required to fund the full cost of the eye examination, plus basic frames and lenses when glasses are required solely and specifically for VDU use.
A. One of the most confusing areas of the DSE regulations concerns bifocals and varifocals. These lenses can be unsuitable for VDU work as it is not always possible to see the screen clearly without lowering or raising the head, which can lead to other associated problems such as neck pain. The basic requirement is then to provide single vision glasses suitable for viewing a screen at the appropriate distance.
A. The intermediate distance is typically 33-60cm.
A. The usual retest cycle is every two years. However there may be occasions where more regular checks are required. This could be down to the individual’s family ocular history, e.g. glaucoma, or some other form of ocular disease. Therefore, based on clinical judgement, the optometrist will recommend retest dates as appropriate.
A. Yes. Under current legislation, employees are entitled to request an eye examination at any time if they feel their eyes have been damaged or strained or if they have suffered headaches caused by their VDU work.
A. 12 month warranty on prescription safety glasses and a three month, no quibble, no fuss, policy on VDU and every day glasses.
A. Both products deliver a full eye examination. In addition, Optical Care gives one complete pair of glasses from the £45 range if the employee requires corrective appliances, whereas VDU Eyecare will only deliver glasses from the £45 range when required solely and specifically for the VDU. VDU Eyecare is a legislative compliance product.
