All DWP staff who use display screen equipment are entitled to a VDU eyecare voucher that provides a range of great discounts at Specsavers.

The voucher first provides a free full eye examination, including digital retinal photography if you’re over-40 or your optician recommends it.

If the optician finds that you require glasses specifically for VDU use, you’ll be entitled to

A full eye test

A full eye test which includes retinal photography if you are over 40 or your optician recommends it.

£50 glasses

Free lenses

If your prescription is for VDU use and for other uses, eg distance or reading, your costs are covered for multifocal lenses as follows: £35 for bifocal lenses, £50 for varifocal lenses and £50 for occupational lenses.

OR upgrade to

£50 towards glasses

OR the £50 contribution can be used towards an upgrade to other frame ranges.

a further £20 towards glasses

Premium Club is an integral part of every VDU eVoucher and it offers a further £20 contribution when glasses are selected from the £100 frame range or above, thus giving you a combined contribution of £70.

If you have your free eye test and the optician determines that you don’t require glasses for VDU use you can still benefit from Premium Club and get £20 off glasses from the £100 range or above which includes designer glasses. Also, you still get 2 for 1 glasses from our £70 range and above.
