Specsavers Corporate Eyecare and RSA join forces

Specsavers Corporate Eyecare has joined forces with leading global insurer RSA to offer eyecare to drivers of vehicles insured under RSA's motor fleet policies. Intermediaries offering RSA cover to fleet clients will now also be able to offer a solution for fleet drivers’ eyecare needs.

Research undertaken by Specsavers Corporate Eyecare earlier this year revealed that more than half (53%) of companies do not offer eyecare to their drivers.

David Geer, UK business director at RSA, said: “Clients that demonstrate a proactive approach to the management of their drivers, including eye examinations, could potentially look at reducing their premiums with us benefiting a significant number of companies.”

Specsavers Corporate Eyecare offers a voucher system for its business customers. Fleet managers can purchase Optical Care Vouchers from Specsavers and simply hand them out to the relevant employees. The vouchers entitle the bearer to a sight test, eye examination and a pair of glasses if they need them. If the sight test shows that an employee does not need glasses, they can have non-prescription sunglasses instead.

Jim Lythgow, director of strategic alliances at Specsavers Corporate Eyecare, said: “Good eyesight is surely an essential prerequisite for driving. Figures show that company drivers are at particular risk and that with eye examinations available for less than £20, it is a cost that is easily justifiable.”
