How to use eVouchers

Register/Login

Simply decide which of our eVouchers are required to meet the needs of your business, then order online via our user-friendly eVoucher portal. On receipt of payment, your eVouchers will be made available to you.

Order & Pay

Distribute the eVouchers to your employees (you can send them digitally or print them off). We can take care of all the administration from then onwards, no need to worry just leave it with us.

Distribute

The minimum order is just 5 eVouchers, from any combination of our products. What’s more, any unused eVouchers can be returned for a full refund or replacement up to 60 days after the expiry date.

What are the benefits for my employees?

Once your employees have their eVouchers, they can make an appointment at any Specsavers store in the UK to redeem their free eye test or discounted glasses — the benefit will depend on the type of eVouchers purchased. 

All they need to do is simply book online or call the store to book an appointment and present the eVouchers prior to the test or glasses purchase for safety glasses.

It really is the most simple and cost-effective way for your employees to access the eyecare or eye protection they need!

Why invest in corporate eyecare?

The right corporate eyecare package helps ensure a safe and healthy workforce. It equips both you and your employees to minimise the risk of workplace injury. Crucially for any reputable employer, it also offers the easiest and most cost-effective way to abide by industry standards.

In a wide range of environments, including offices, driving, industrial, manufacturing and construction, you are legally obliged to provide eyecare to certain members of your workforce. 

Cost-effective, simple to use and rewarding. Our eVoucher schemes cover all aspects of corporate eyecare, and crucially, are designed with both the employee and employer in mind. Cost-effective, simple to use and rewarding.

Do your employees work with VDU?

Frequent, long-term use of computers and other types of visual display units (VDUs) can cause some employees to experience eye discomfort.    

Proper eyecare — including eye tests and glasses where necessary — can mean fewer strained or tired eyes among your employees, better morale, higher productivity and a healthier workplace environment. 

What is the VDU legislation?

Under the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations, UK employees who work for long periods with VDUs are entitled to an eye examination, funded by their employer.

If they need glasses solely because of VDU usage, the employer is obliged to pay for basic frames and lenses. 

The Specsavers VDU eVoucher package makes it easier than ever for employers to look after their staff, and to comply with these rules.

Do your employees work in construction?

Construction sites and similar environments are home to multiple risks to your employees’ eyes, including dust, sparks, flashes, chemical contamination and blunt force trauma. 

Specsavers safety eyewear delivers precisely the protection you need to ensure tradespeople, surveyors, engineers and all other workers are safe.

What are the safety eyewear regulations? 

There are several rules and regulations governing safety eyewear in the UK. These include: 

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. This stipulates that employers need to consider what risks to health and safety are present in the workplace (including the risk of eye injury), and take sensible steps to tackle them. 

Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999. This sets out how employers should manage risks, including the need for risk assessments. 

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Regulations 1992. This sets out rules on the type, suitability and usage of protective equipment, including eyewear. 

All Specsavers safety glasses conform to EN166 specifications and are British Standards kitemarked. They are also available with prescription lenses, removing the need for clumsy fitting of goggles over glasses. 

Do your employees drive for work?

Did you know a third of road deaths and a fifth of serious injuries are sustained during accidents involving a working driver or rider? In fact, occupational driving (and especially if this involves driving at night) is one of the most visually demanding tasks. 

That’s why accessible eyecare is particularly important for employees that drive a company vehicle. 

What are the driving eyecare regulations?

In the UK, there is no absolute duty for employers to provide eye tests and pay for glasses for drivers. 

However, under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, there is a general duty on employers to ensure the health and safety of all staff while at work, and to ensure that others are not put at risk by employees’ work-related activities. 

That’s why the introduction of formal eyecare policies is good practice.

FAQ’s

How can I keep track of the vouchers I’ve allocated to my employees?

By using the eVoucher report functionality within the designated online portal.

Can my employee use Safety Eyewear eVouchers in exchange for everyday glasses?

No - Safety Eyewear eVouchers can only be redeemed against the safety eyewear range in store. For every day glasses Optical eVouchers would be the best option.

As an employer, am I legally obligated to provide eyecare?

Yes – under the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992, that came into force on January 1993, you are legally obliged to provide eyecare to certain parts of your workforce. These regulations deal with the suitability of workstations, the daily routines of workers, and the provision of eyecare for staff members.
