Vision Screening

Visualise a Safer Workplace

Have you ever considered how much of your day you spend staring at a screen? Whether you’re looking at a phone, computer, or tablet, these digital devices take a toll on the eyes. If you want to preserve the visual health of your employees, we recommend regular vision screenings.

A vision screen, or eye test, is a brief assessment that identifies potential visual deficits or eye disorders in an individual. A vision screen is not a diagnostic tool. However, it can be used to determine if a more detailed assessment is required by an Ophthalmologist or Optometrist.

Regardless of your industry, Employer & Disability Health Solutions can help you protect your employee’s vision and effectively manage any issues that may arise. We use a titmus vision screening device to identify potential vision deficits before they have a chance to impact your workplace.

This is critically important for roles that require individuals to operate machinery or spend a lot of time using visual display units (VDUs). Vision screenings before hire and throughout the course of their employment can ensure that they are able to effectively and safely perform the duties of their role. It allows you to proactively manage vision related risks and protect your employees.
