VDU Eyecare Information

The 1992 Health and Safety (VDU) Regulations

Employers whose staff use VDUs have a responsibility to provide:

Full eye examination by a qualified optometrist. A screening test alone does not satisfy the requirements.

Regular follow up eye examinations, at a time depending on the individual circumstances and a recommendation given by the optometrist.

Eye exams for new employees.

VDU corrective spectacles, if required, for VDU use.


Matheson Optometrists offer schemes to local corporate employers to help them meet these obligations cost effectively, by offering discounted eye exam fees and a discounted range of VDU spectacles.
