Well run organisations, regardless of their Health & Safety obligations, concern themselves with the well-being of their staff. With 63% of the UK population requiring optical correction at some stage in their lifetime, good sight is one of the most fundamental health issues impacting on both personal welfare and productivity.
The SpeckyFourEyes Eyecare Scheme is for organisations that:
- care about their employees sight
- may have obligations under the HSE (Display Screen) Regulations
- want to offer valuable staff benefits at little or no cost to themselves
The Real Cost Of Eyecare
If your company falls under the aegis on the HSE regulations, you have a legal obligation to cover the costs of regular eye-tests and basic glasses for your employees who spend “a significant amount of time” working with display screens. And the bottom line to this obligation, inclusive of low or no cost prescriptions*, is that the cost of even ‘basic’ glasses on the High Street is not insubstantial. That is why an ever-increasing proportion of glasses wearers are turning to web-based retailers who can offer savings of up to 80%. The SpeckyFourEyes scheme was created to enable organisations to offer a benevolent benefit while at the same time taking advantage of lower prices.
*Low or no-cost prescription are used by the High Street to ‘hide’ the high margins that they enjoy on the frames. Even if your company currently offers staff free prescriptions, the cost of their ‘basic’ frames will still not be insignificant. And a great many people would prefer not to wear ‘basic’ frames, thereby creating all sorts of issues and compromises.
How The Scheme Works
Participating organisations are given a unique code which gives their staff a discount on all the frames and lens packages on our site. They will need to have a recent (within 24 months) prescription, which they can either have obtained independently or via an existing company scheme. They are then free to choose the frames that they really want – often costing less than the ‘basic’ ones available on the high street – and at an affordable prices that knocks £££s off traditional retailers. And with SpeckyFourEyes 100% satisfaction guaranteed behind them, you can be sure that your staff are getting not only the eyecare they deserve but also the frames that they want. Additionally our discount is available to them, regardless of the number of frames (including sunglasses, reading and speciality sports glasses) that they order – making the scheme a valuable company benefit beyond the basic obligations.
